Division IV quarterfinals

March 7: No. 4 Sunapee 84, No. 12 WLC 52

After an upset of the number five seed Colebrook, Wilton-Lyndeborough looked to keep their season alive against a strong Sunapee team. Unfortunately for the Warriors, the Lakers were nearly flawless at the free throw lines, going 25 for 26 to put the game out of reach.

Coach Ken Garnham saw major improvements in the season and looks forward to next year. “We ended up 11-11, which is an improvement over last year. We Won a tournament game. Overall, we took a major step in becoming a respectable program again.”
