The Lebanon boys’ basketball team wrapped up the 2016-17 season in the championship game of the Missouri Class 5 District 10 tournament on Friday with a loss to Willard at Waynesville High School.
After losing 20 games in three of the past four seasons and notching just six wins last year, Lebanon went 13-15 overall and 3-6 in the Ozark Conference. While it is the program’s eighth straight losing season, the 13 wins are the most since Kyle Paulson led the Yellowjackets to a 14-11 record in 2008-09. The league record of 3-6 matches last season’s mark.
The 13 wins are the most under head coach Adam Thornhill, who completed his fourth season at Lebanon.
“We have seen improvement every year and this where it was evident in wins,” Thornhill said. “We were definitely better this year, but every year we have shown improvement. We were better last year than we were the year before that, but this was the year where it was evident because the wins were obviously there.”
