A region championship, a historic win over Jefferson, a 23-8 season and an elite eight finish — not bad for the Commerce boys’ basketball team this season.
The boys’ fairy tale season ended last Saturday against Whitefield Academy. Commerce advanced into the quarterfinal round of the Class A state playoffs, but was halted 86-38 by the Wolfpack.
“We did not finish the way we wanted but I am very proud of what this team was able to accomplish. Our final record was 23-8, region champs and finish in the Elite 8,” said coach Chad Bridges, adding that the team will look back on this season with some good memories.
