Almost A Magical Season

Filed in Personal, SportsTags: Indiana, Shelbyville

My high school alma mater almost had a magical season, but the Shelbyville boys basketball team fell to Bloomington South 46-45 in the title game of Class 4A Sectional 14.

Class 4A No. 5-ranked Shelbyville had several chances to find a way to win its first sectional championship since 2001 and keep its unbeaten streak alive, but in the end the Golden Bears were left doing the same thing they did last season — watching Bloomington South celebrate.

Bloomington South senior Cole Holmstrom stole the win in the final minutes then almost gave it back to the Golden Bears, but Sean Drake’s 12-foot jumper from the wing rattled off the rim and into Ben Chappell’s hands. Chappell fired a pass to Holmstrom, who raced up court and ran out the final seconds on the clock to preserve a 46-45 win.

They finished the season 23-1.
