Thornton Academy Boys Basketball
Dustin Cole, guarded by Evan Wright of Thornton Academy, didn’t have the greatest shooting night for Bonny Eagle, but his playmaking and foul shooting made a difference in a 54-38 victory at the Civic Center.
|Coach: Bob Davies, 10th year
Last year: 13-6, lost in Western Class A quarterfinals
Returning starters: 3
Impact players: Jeff Gelinas, sr., F; Quinn Richardson-Newton, sr., G;
F; Adam Ek, sr., G; Ruben Moses, jr., G; Evan Wright, jr., G
Outlook: The Golden Trojans have been regular tournament qualifiers
under Coach Davies, winning the state title in 2009. The team is led by
Gelinas, Richardson-Newton and Ek. Newton is a strong defensive player
who often guards the other team’s top offensive guard or forward. He was
named to the league’s all-rookie team. Ek is a strong shooter. Gelinas
has a solid all-around game.
