Miamisburg High School
The boys basketball season came to an end on Tuesday night as the Vikings fell to the Wayne Warriors 70 – 60 at Vandalia Butler high school in the second round of the OHSAA Sectional Tournament. Miamisburg trailed by three points with 2:00 remaining, but was forced to foul and the Warriors connected on their free throws to seal the win. Miamisburg was led by Senior Lathan Hartman with 14 points and 5 assists and Junior Kort Justice who scored 23 points. Miamisburg closed the season winning 5 of their last 9 games with three of their losses coming to the top three seeds of the tournament #1 Springfield (68-60) on Feb. 18th, #2 Northmont (71-54) on Feb. 17, and on Tuesday to #3 seed Wayne. During that stretch Miamisburg defeated the #6 Seed Fairborn Skyhawks and the #7 seed Springboro Panthers. The final game of the season also brought to a close the careers of Miamisburg’s three seniors: Lathan Hartman, Evan Fox, and Kyle Fox. We wish them the best of luck in the future and thank them for their dedication to the basketball program.
