The McIntosh boys basketball team is on a red-hot roll, but they’ve got work left to do. The Chiefs capped off a school-record 25-0 regular season on Friday night with a dominating 71-37 win over Northgate.
“An undefeated regular season validates all of the hard work we have put in since the end of last season. It also is great to know that no one will be able to top what this group has done in the regular season,” said McIntosh coach Jason Eisele. “Having said that, our goals for this season are still unaccomplished. We are 0-0 now, same as everybody else.”
The Chiefs, ranked number two in AAAAA, move into the region tournament as the top seed. Their next goal is a region crown, then onto a state title.
“This regular season has taught my guys to be confident yet vigilant,” said Eisele. “To accomplish what we have has taken a tremendous amount of focus that we did not have last year. If we can take that confidence, vigilance, and focus into the post season, I like our chances.”
The Chiefs take the court again on Thursday night against an as-yet undetermined foe at 8:30 p.m. at Drew High School.
The Lady Chiefs are also in the midst of a strong season. They finished the regular season 17-8 and won their opener in the region tourney, 48-23 over Ola on Monday night. They advance to round two where they will face Luella today at 5:30 p.m. at Drew.
