MANOR’S MARVIN BONILLA goes up for two points during the Section IX Class D championship game versus S.S. Seward at West Point’s Christl Arena.

How the Wildcats
Did This Season

By Rob Potter
April 2, 2004 – LIVINGSTON MANOR

Overall Record: 10-11

League Record: 6-4 OCIAA Division VI

Team Leaders: Patrick Branning, Timmy Bryant and Anthony Larry were the squad’s leading scorers. All averaged at least 10 points a game.
Branning and Larry were also the team’s top rebounders.

Season Highlight(s): “Going to West Point,” said Charlie Hicks, who completed his first season as the Wildcats’ head coach. “It was excellent to get in [sectionals] and win a game; playing in the finals at West Point was incredible.”
Manor defeated The Family School in the Section IX Class D semifinals before falling to S.S. Seward in the title game at West Point’s Christl Arena.
The Wildcats also had some memorable moments during the regular season.
“We played Florida [S. S. Seward] tough a couple of times and played Tri-Valley tough a couple of times,” Hicks said.
Hicks also noted that “taking second place in the division was nice.”

Season Lowlight: Hicks said it was losing to Chapel Field by one point in overtime after defeating that same CF team by 25 points just a week earlier.

Other: The Wildcats will lose nine players to graduation. They include Evan Bowers, Patrick Branning, Josh Evans, Saquib Iqbal, Kyle Lackey, Anthony Larry, Terrance McCann, Kris Schleiermacher and George Thomas.
“We should have a good nucleus of players coming back,” Hicks commented.
Among those players are Bryant and fellow juniors Marvin Bonilla and Josh Mendez.
“I had a great first season,” Hicks said. “I’m really happy with the year we had.”
