Monticello Records Nearly
As Many Wins as Losses

By Rob Potter

March 19, 2004 – MONTICELLO

Overall Record: 10-12

League Record: 2-2 OCIAA Division III

Top Players: Junior guard T.J. Walker led the Panthers throughout the season. He averaged 13.9 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 3.2 steals per game.

Season Highlight: Coach Dick O’Neill noted that his team has several highlights this year.
“Qualifying for the sectional tournament was big,” said O’Neill, who noted that the Panthers went into the 2003-2004 season with no returning starters. “We really had a good year.
“We finished with 10 wins, which is more than I thought we would have at the beginning of the season. I’m very happy with the season. We beat Goshen twice and had a lot of big wins.”

Season Lowlight: O’Neill said that there was no lowlight for his squad this season.
“Everything was positive,” he commented. “These guys improved so much during the year. I think this team improved more than any other team I have coached.”

Other comments: The Panthers will lose only one senior starter, David Davila.
“We have a good nucleus of players returning next year,” O’Neill said.
