The Sequoits’ season finale

After a hard fought game, the Sequoit boys basketball season comes to an end.


The Antioch boys varsity basketball season came to an end on Feb. 22, following a loss against Niles Notre Dame. The Sequoits were hopeful that their juice would not run out and that they could return to the regional championship for back-to-back years.

Throughout the first quarter, the boys were playing phenomenal defense and maintained the lead over the Notre Dame Dons, as it was 8-5 heading into the second quarter. Junior Colby Priller and sophomore Teddi Wetu, both came out attacking the rim and both had lay-ups to start the second quarter. This created a spark and had the Sequoits create a bigger lead as the score was 22-12 at the half. 

“I felt confident, and as a team, we felt great going into the game knowing that we were well-prepped and ready to compete,” Colby Priller said.

During the third quarter, the Dons came out swinging playing solid defense and pushing the ball up the floor, playing faster than the first half as they went on a 12-2 run tying the game at 24.  The boys could not get shots to fall and the Dons closed the third quarter with a huge 3-point buzzer-beater to extend their lead 34-26. 

“Basketball is a game of runs, they went on a run and we couldn’t slow them down from there on,” Senior captain Ethan Kolloff said.

The boys fought hard in the fourth quarter but were not able to overcome their struggles and the Dons were slowly walking away with the game in their hands. In the end, the Sequoits fell short to Niles Notre Dame with a final score of 48-35 making it their last game of the season. 

“It’s hard to see the seniors leave,” Teddi Wetu said. “They welcomed me with open arms in the middle of the season and will not forget about this.”

Congratulations to the Antioch boys varsity basketball team on a great season as they had the most wins since 1997, and concluded with a record of 17-14.
