The Gibraltar boys basketball team’s season is over after a loss in the sectional semifinal to their conference rival Green Bay N.E.W. Lutheran on Thursday night, a game broadcasted on 105.1 The Viking. Gibraltar got off to a slow start and went down by double digits early on. Trevor Reinhardt knocked down three 3 point shots and Brady Ash added a dunk to eventually give the Vikings a lead late in the first half. The Blazers ended the half on a bit of a run and led 31-26 at halftime. That run continued when the teams returned from the locker room as Packerland Conference Player of the Year Samuel Meerstein scored 20 of his game high 30 points in the second half. The final score was 78-50.
Trevor Reinhardt finished with 16 points to lead the way for the Vikings in his final high school basketball game. Evan Henry finished with eight and Andras Szakala had five points in their final games at Gibraltar.
Green Bay N.E.W. Lutheran will advance to the sectional final to take on Columbus Catholic on Saturday night at Wausau West High School.
Gibraltar finishes the season at 13-12 overall and 7-9 in the Packerland Conference. They won their first regional championship since 1975.
