Adam Woodin had 17 points on 7-11 shooting as seventh ranked Laurens-Marathon got by Burlington Notre Dame 47-35 as the Chargers come out with a win in their first trip to the state tournament.
Woodin said he was very nervous before the game, but didn’t notice it once he got into the flow of the game. Woodin says the Chargers effort was good as they executed well and moved the ball on offense.
Notre Dame shot a chilly 28% for the game. Junior Andrew Schilling led the way with 11 points while senior forward Chris Kirk finished with eight points. Kirk says they couldn’t capitalize on the offensive end and didn’t do a good job of rebounding defensively.
It is the second straight year that the Nikes fell in the opening round. Kirk says it’s tough now to deal with, but he says when they look back on it and see that not a lot of teams make back-to-back trips to state, it is something that’s nothing to be ashamed of.
