Paxton Boy's Basketball Returns Four Starters
Following a 13-10 season in 2021-2022, the Paxton Boy's Basketball team will look to grow. They will be under the direction of a new head coach, Justin Hardin, but he has been an assistant there for 17 years, so a familiar face to the program. Hardin inherits a team that has experience coming back. "(We) return four starters from a team that got to district finals last year. Excited to build on that," said Hardin.
The Tigers return two conference performers as senior Isaiah Fox and junior Josh Eakins each were RPAC West All-Conference Honorable Mention selections.
They will take on Anselmo-Merna on Thursday, December 1st to begin the year.

Hebbert also said, "Parker Riesburg (120) freshman Gunnar Foster (152 ) junior both with a lot of Federation experience Joe Eakins is a first-year wrestler and a good athlete, Kenyon Florom at 170 freshmen with federation experience."
