The boys traveled to Fresno on March 29th to play in the 46th annual Fresno Easter Classic. The best teams in California, including some of the highest ranked teams in the nation, routinely play in this tourney. Last year Crater outperformed more than thirty other squads and appeared in the championship game against eventual-champion and perennial powerhouse, Clovis High. This year an inexperienced Crater team hopes to overcome the odds and compete for the championship once again. Here’s the schedule and the outcomes:
Monday, March 30th, 4:00 vs Reedley — Crater lost 2 to 4
Monday, March 30th, 7:00 vs Fresno — Crater lost 0 to 6
Tuesday, March 31st, 1:00 vs Franklin — Crater lost 5 to 7
Wednesday, April 1st, 1:00 vs Red Bluff — Crater lost 0 to 1
