The Dierks senior high boys basketball team has had some success so far this season and is undefeated in conference play. Head Coach Kevin Alexander says he hopes they continue to play at a high level.
“We started the year at 1-3, finally got our stride and won 7 straight recently. We played at Sacred Heart over the holidays, split two games and are now 9-4 during Christmas break. Our goal is to advance to the state tournament, we’ve made regional tournaments but Dierks has never gotten to the state tournament.”
Coach Alexander says Dierks has bid to host a regional tournament and will find out the results on January 11th. He says a lot of work has taken place at the gym as far as improvements.
Alexander also talked about the support of the community and how the atmosphere at basketball games has really been exciting. He says they have some tough conference games ahead including Mineral Springs, Kirby and Mount Ida. Dierks is currently 3-0 in the conference.
