Ludden boys topped in regional by Scotia-Glenville

Tartans avenge 2013 defeat, keep Gaelic Knights from state final four return

Kaigler, making his final high-school appearance, got 14 points, while fellow senior Ben Hackett had eight rebounds to go with his 10 points. They were far behind Sausville, though, as the senior poured in 28 points, converting 12 of the 16 shots he faced to lead a Tartans attack that burned Ludden by hitting more than 60 percent of its shots overall.

Scotia proved far too good, and the remarkable run enjoyed by seniors Kaigler, Hackett, Kevin Sierotnik and Kyle Hawk, which included a state Class B championship in 2012, two trips to the state final four and three straight sectional titles, was over.

Rauch should return, at full strength, in 2014-15, joining Zach Walser as the key components in Ludden’s attempt to maintain its high standing without many of the stars who made it possible.
