“I am very happy with Max’s and Jon’s season overall. Max finished the season at 37-4 and Jon 35-13. To get over the 30-win mark is a great accomplishment as is qualifying for the state tournament,” said Elkhart Resorter head coach Larry Ward.

“Unfortunately they came up short at the state tournament, getting knocked out after the first round. This will be a great motivator for these guys to work hard in the offseason in an effort to not only qualify again next year but to also make the podium.”
