Bryan County's rough, tough season is over.
The Redskins (1-25) fell 64-38 to Emmanuel County Institute on Monday in Millen in the first round of the Region 3-A basketball tourney.
The loss followed the Redskins' only win of the season, a 35-34 victory over Southeast Bulloch on the final day of the regular season Saturday in Brooklet.
"It was a tough season," said BCHS coach Allen Clark. "(The regular-season-ending SEB win) is a victory that seems small now but will be huge heading into next season. It takes a single brick to start to build any building, so that was our first brick."
DeVante' Fraizer had 14 points and Kendall Dixon tossed in 13 in Monday's season-ending setbacl. Mychael Smith and Albert Chavis added four points each and Ben Gowens finished with three points for the Redskins.
"I really enjoyed working with this group of student-athletes," Clark said. "They truly put forth the effort each and every night. I also would like to thank our seniors, Albert Chavis, Devante' Frazier and Kendall Dixon, for giving me the support I needed during the season."
Clark also thanked those who stood by the Redskins throughout the year.
"I would also like to thank the group of fans who sat through every game and endured the defeats along with me," he said. "They were very supportive to me and the players and that is very important."
Note: The Bryan County High School girls (22-3, 9-1) play Thursday at 4 p.m. in Portal against the winner of Tuesday night's matchup between Savannah Country Day and Jenkins County.
