Wasatch Academy Finishes Season 26-4 with 7-Point Loss to Oak Hill at 2019 GEICO Nationals in New York City
(New York City) — #5 Wasatch Academy loses to #4 Oak Hill Academy 72-79 at the quarterfinals of the 2019 GEICO Nationals.
Regardless of the results, first-year Wasatch’s David Evans became the first head coach to lead two schools in the GEICO Nationals. Last year, Evans coached Lone Peak (Highland, Utah) in the quarterfinals before losing to eventual champion Montverde.
Mike Saunders topped the Tigers with 22 points, making 7 of 10 shots, Tre Williams and Richie Saunders both hit for 10 points. Lohner added 15 points, draining 3 of 4 from downtown and grabbed four rebounds. Lohner showed stretches of fine play and is only a junior.
Wasatch concluded 26-4 but return a solid core that should have them back in the running for another trip to the GEICO Nationals in 2020.
