Boys hoops season ends with subdistrict loss

Kaleb Quick scores on a putback in Tekamah-Herman’s subdistrict loss to West Point-Beemer. Quick is among several young players expected back for the Tigers next season.

Coach Zack Rosenboom’s Tigers ended the season on Monday with a 59-45 load to West Point-Beemer in the C1- Subdistrict 6 tournament at Oakland-Craig.

The loss also marked the final game in a Tiger uniform for the lone senior this season, Clay Beaumont.
