Congrats to the Minico Spartans on their 2014-2015 season. They finished second in their conference in the regular season and made it to the state play-in game where they came up short against an experienced Bishop Kelly team that shot an astounding 68% from the field. Minico has a bright future, losing only one senior starter.
Middle School Madness: West Minico 7th and 8th grade teams were regular season league champs, with the 7th grade finishing 20-0 and the 8th graders finishing 18-2, with one of those losses coming to East Minico in OT. East Minico 8th graders came up big in the final season tournament again, beating West in the semifinals and coming up just short in the championship. East Minico 7th graders also had a solid year, finishing 4th in the league. Congrats to Paul Afiaki, Dennis Haynes, Mike McManus, and Rudy for great seasons!
