The Townsend boys’ and girls’ basketball teams seek the 5B district title at the end of the 2016-2017 season.
The Lady Bulldogs miss the playoffs last season. However, they only loss one senior from 2015 squad and do not have a senior this year. Coach Dan Hazlett hopes their chemistry overcomes a lack of senior leadership.
On the boys’ side, they finished 3rd in the state. Townsend will be lead by junior Easton Hatfield. The forward will not be alone sophomore Tyson Rauh is expected to play a major role on the team this season.
The boys and girls will play in the Manhattan Tournament on Dec. 9. Their opponent in the two-date event is yet to be determined.
