“The team received tremendous support from the school and community during their exciting journey to the state championship,” said Rep. Rhoads. “I am privileged to honor their hard work, dedication and perseverance.”

 After leading the entire game, the Borden Braves defeated the Triton Trojans 55-50 to win the Class A state championship game. Senior Jalen McCoy scored three 3-pointers and finished with a team high of 15 points.

 Senior Michael Lynch was awarded the Trester Award for Mental Attitude. The recipients of this award, who were nominated by their principals and coaches, must excel in mental attitude, scholarship, leadership and athletic ability in basketball. Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance presents a $1,000 scholarship to each school in the name of the recipient.

 “This is the first state basketball title for Borden High School,” said Rep. Davisson. “These young gentlemen have made their school, community and state proud.”

 The team is coached by Doc Nash and assisted by Ray Weatherford and Kaden Nolot.
