Cubs end season with loss to Meunster
HENRIETTA— The Olney Cubs’ season came to an end after taking a 55-25 loss to Muenster last Friday.
The Cubs took the lead on the first possession off a jumper by senior guard Brent McCorkle, but that was Olney’s only lead of the night as Muenster would pour on the points to take a lead that would be insurmountable.
“It was disappointing. We wanted to win that game, but, overall, it was a good season,” McCorkle said. “We accomplished more than we set out to, but it was disappointing to end that way.”
McCorkle would score nearly half of the Cubs 25 points with his team-leading 11, but that was not enough to rally the Cubs back.
For Olney coach Carl Pennington, the end of the season just means the beginning of the next season, but he feels the mark left by the 2016-2017 seniors is something that will benefit the program for years to come.
“We knew we would have to play perfect against Muenster,” Pennington said. “They are ranked for a reason and it showed. They played great defense ... I want to thank the seniors for playing. Brent and Carson (Fite) have stuck with us for all four years. They brought joy back to coaching this year. We had fun in practice and they were fun to be around. They were a good group of guys and we’re going to miss them. I’m looking forward to seeing what they do in the next chapter of their lives.”
