By BHS Activities

This season’s basketball teams went a combined 38-16 after going 39-17 last year. Both win totals are more than any other teams since a combined 42-12 record during the days of Kayla Hirt and Carey Woods in 2009-10.

This March, the girls also reached their first section championship game in a decade, and the boys are a year removed from their first state tournament appearance in 34 years.

Emily Wade

Junior, girls basketball

Emily Wade led the offensive efforts for Bemidji on Thursday during the program’s first section championship appearance in 10 years. With a number of highlight-reel shots, the junior guard tallied a team-high 12 points against Alexandria, Class 3A’s second-best scoring defense, in a 63-51 loss in Detroit Lakes. Wade’s hustle and active presence helped the Lumberjacks navigate through their offensive woes in the first half, which, in turn, gave BHS a chance down the stretch.

Quincy Wilson

Senior, boys basketball

Quincy Wilson aided the Lumberjacks in reaching the Section 8-3A semifinals with a team-high 15-point performance in an opening-round win over Little Falls on Tuesday. The senior point guard also produced five assists and five steals for a well rounded showing. In a dramatic 71-62 semifinal loss to Alexandria on Friday, Wilson finished with seven points, six rebounds and six assists, and he even took a charge. Wilson and BHS finished 19-7 on the year.
