Sophomore Trevor Waite led Tri-West with 20 points and sophomore Jake Hendershot added 11 points. Stamm came off the bench to score 12 points in his final game as a Bruin.
Bontreger praised all five of his seniors after the game, a group that started with him in the program four years ago when he became Tri-West’s head coach.
Mitch Alexander was praised for being a vocal leader and “the type of kid you want in your program because of his toughness, his mental toughness, and his will and desire to win.”
Sam Koelling was commended for his three-point shooting, leadership as a captain, and as someone who will be hard to replace.
Bontreger felt that Stamm had been huge at the end of the season for the Bruins and was playing his best basketball of his entire life.
Nick Phelps and Dustin Burks were the final two seniors that Bontreger complimented. Phelps for his energy and spark off the bench and Burks for sticking with the sport and starting the majority the season.
“For five of those guys to stick it out through four years of our practices and four years of at times ups and downs, I thought our leadership was much improved just because of our seniors,” Bontreger said. “Each one had a different story to tell, each one had a different role on our team, and that’s what makes up good programs when you have good leadership from the top.”
