The boysâ basketball team quest for a state title came to end Tuesday night as the visiting Wolverines lost 79-74 to Ridgeview in Bakersfield. The lost was the second straight for the boys, this coming off the heels of a 22 game win streak. After losing to Compton Centennial in CIF semifinals, the boysâ were invited to the state tournament but drew a very low seed and were forced to play Ridgeview on the road. The trip to Ridgeview, located in Bakersfield, took two hours and the team was greeted by a packed to capacity gym, with no Harvard-Westlake Fanatics accompanying the team.
âIt was a really hostile environment and a tough place to play,â guard Chris Barnum â10 said. âBut there is no excuse we didnât play our best and Iâm sad our season had to come to an end.â
