Hartford Boy’s Basketball Team Makes State History Books!

By Jerrod Birmele The Hartford Boy’s Basketball team had a season to remember last year. The memories the Indians team made all the way from start to finish will be remembered for a long time in the hearts and minds of their loyal fan base, but now, a couple of the team’s accomplishments will be recognized on a statewide level. Recently, the team entered into the Michigan High School Athletic Association’s Record Book in two different categories! The Record Book categories the Indians are now enshrined in include: “Most Three Pointers in one Game” (including their opponent’s total makes) and “Most Three Pointers by one Team During an Entire Season.” The first Record Book entry—most three pointers in one game—occurred on Friday, January 25, inside Indian Gymnasium. On a night when Hartford celebrated Winterfest, the Indians and their opponent, the Bangor Vikings, lit up the gym, teaming up to make 23 total three-point baskets. Of those 23 three-point makes, Hartford cashed in on 14 of their attempts, while Bangor made 9 of their shots from outside the arc. This night will go into the history books in a tie-for-ninth most in state history. The second Record Book entry—most three pointers in a season—saw the team make a total of 197 three-point baskets last year. That means the team scored a whopping 591 total points from beyond the arc last season. To put this historical entry into perspective, the Indians made a total of 622 baskets combined, meaning that nearly 32 percent of their makes were made from beyond the arc. This feat will go into the history books for seventeenth most in state history. The Hartford Boy’s Basketball team, under the direction of Head Coach John Johnson and Assistant Coach Kevin McGrew, finished 18-4, good enough for second-place in the Southwest 10 Conference, while also advancing to the district finals in the postseason. Congratulations to the players and coaches on these truly outstanding accomplishments!
