After winning back-to-back games, the Fredericksburg High School boys’ varsity basketball team is now 2-1 in district play.

On Friday, Jan. 22, the boys won at home against Devine, 66-40. Head coach Tim Kaman said the team had an all-around great game.

“This is how I envisioned this team to play at the beginning of the year,” Kaman said. “This is the right time to be coming together.”

Teamwork was the key component that helped the Billies get the win.

“We really played well on the defensive end, led by Cole Bourgeois and Kyle Reeh,” Kaman said. “Eli Esensee came off the bench to lead us in scoring.   The best thing we did tonight on offense was share the ball.  We made the extra pass which led to an easier shot.  If we continue to do that, then we could be successful.”
