BEACON FALLS — The Woodland boys’ basketball team celebrated senior night Wednesday by qualifying for the state tournament for just the second time in school history. The Hawks, playing in their final game of the regular season, got down to business and defeated Seymour by a 60-49 margin, making the postseason for the first time since 2005.
“These kids left everything they had on the court, and they deserve this,” Woodland head coach Tom Hunt said.
Seniors Bryan Spickle (23 points, 10 rebounds), Shaine Thompson (13 points), Ryan Genua (seven points, nine assists), and three-point shooter Eric Brandien came into the final home game of their careers, looking to extend the season.
