It’s been a tough season for the New Roads boys’ basketball

team. The Jaguars are winless so far in Coastal League play, and has recorded

just one victory on the season. 

Despite their 1-13 overall record prior going

head-to-head with Rolling Hills Prep in a Costal League matchup, New Roads have

played tough throughout the season and has been real close to notching a couple

of  more wins under their belt. 

It takes

a lot of grit and determination to keep fighting and battling to play opponents

week in and week out while going through a rough patch. The Jaguars keep coming

back. The Jaguars put up 59 points against Wildwood, the team’s highest scoring

output of the season, but came up a little short to get the win, falling to the

Wolves, 68-59. 

A couple of weeks ago, on Jan. 15, in a game against California

Academy of Math & Science, dropped a 44-42 decision to the Rebels. In fact,

New Roads got off to a promising start against Rebels, taking a 13-5 first

quarter lead in the contest. 

But the

Jaguars were outscored in the middle periods, which created a separation

between the two teams at the end of the game.
