New Hampton’s Carter Ferrie muscles his way through traffic for a layup in the district loss to Denver.
In order to pull off the upset over a 15-6 Denver team in their opening-round district game, the New Hampton boys basketball team needed to put together a solid performance at both ends of the court.

New Hampton senior Austin Bast leads a fast break during Friday night’s game.
