Quakers headline All-Area boys team

Senior Ryan Bush and the Salem Quakers had a season to remember.

Bush, who set all of Salem’s scoring records this season, is the Morning Journal’s 2012-13 All-Area boys basketball player of the year.

Salem headlines the All-Area team as Bush is joined on the first team by Salem senior Anthony Shivers and Rich Hart is the coach of the year.

“After last year, we lost 10 to 11 games at the end and that kind of possessed this group to get better,” Hart said. “And they did.”

The Quakers finished with a 19-7 record, their third winning season in 15 years. Only five other Salem boys basketball teams have ever won more games.
