WCS Hoops Wraps Up Excellent Season

Share on RSS


Wesleyan Christian School boys’ basketball had its season end on Saturday night against Leedey in the Class B Area I Consolation finals.

This means the Mustang’s finished one win shy of making it to the Big House. A tough end to a spectacular season.

WCS trailed by 10 most of the game. Mustangs would get as close as six in the fourth quarter but were never able to make Leedey uncomfortable enough to mount a complete comeback. Leedey won 59-48.

Head coach Steven Cooks says it was an offensive draught in the first half that cost WCS.

The Mustangs played the game even over the final 16 minutes but could never close the gap.

The game ends the career of four seniors who have been vital to the resurgence of Wesleyan Christian School athletics.

Ty Cloud, Kael Siemers, Cooper Holley and Mason Jensen were all big parts of the season. Cloud will move on to play college basketball. Siemers was notable for his effort plays, particularly on defense. Holley was a three-year starter. Jensen was a solid role player off the bench since transferring into the program as a sophomore.

Cooks talks about what this senior class has meant to WCS hoops.

The success the program has had has drawn more attention from younger basketball players in the Wesleyan Christian School system. Cooks mentioned a surplus of players wanting to play varsity basketball. WCS had enough that he rotated in younger players to get a taste of varsity hoops.

Cooks says the seniors deserve credit for that, too. 

WCS finishes the year at 24-5. It was a school record in wins and the Mustang’s Area Tournament berth was the first in program history.
