Barr-Reeve honors basketball teams

MONTGOMERY — The Barr-Reeve boys basketball team may have fallen short of the elusive state championship, it still had plenty to be proud of as the school looked back at another strong campaign under veteran coach, Bryan Hughes.

In addition to honoring the boys team, the girls — coached by Mark Holt — got their fair share of accolades. The Lady Vikings led by senior guard Jenna Knepp lost in the sectional championship game to Class A state runner-up Vincennes Rivet.

During the 2013-14 season, Barr-Reeve won 26 of 28 games as the triumvirate of senior Micah Bullock, junior Addison Wagler and sophomore Logan James consistently put opponents at a disadvantage. Bullock, Wagler and James were named to the Blue Chip Conference Team, while Chris Wittmer and Duncan Roy garnered honorable mention honors. Bullock, Wagler and James were named the most valuable players at the annual banquet.

Chris Wittmer (60 percent) earned the overall field goal shooting award and Bullock grabbed awards for three-point shooting (43 percent) and free throw shooting (73 percent). Wagler and Roy won the total rebounder award as the junior tandem pulled down 154 and 146 rebounds respectively. James and Wittmer were named co-defensive players of the year and Wittmer led the team in steals with 56. James dished out 126 assists to win that award and Wittmer was named most improved player.

Senior reserved Jon McMullen was named the team mental attitude award and Bullock, Logan Lengacher, McMullen and Ryan Knepp were given the varsity senior awards. Team Success Award Winners were Knepp, Connor Swartzentruber, Seth Swartzentruber, Ethan Duncheon, Matt Stoll, Adam Graber, Jalon Graber and Trevor Yoder.

Bullock was named as a IBCA All-State Honorable Mention and a HBCA All-Star. James and Wagler were named to IBCA Underclassmen All-State Honorable Mention and Logan Lengacher was named IBCA Academic All-State Honorable Mention. The senior student managers were Tyler Bennett, Sam Craney, Chayse Wagler and Chris Winkler.
