Memorable even without sectional title

Two fast starts, one impressive finish and an 11-game winning streak were among the highlights supplied by Johnson County programs during the 2012-13 boys basketball season.

Unfortunately, the county failed to net a single sectional title for the first time since 2009.

The season featured a pair of first-year head coaches, Franklin’s Jerry Bomholt and Whiteland’s Matt Wadsworth. Standing alone at the opposite end of the tenure spectrum would be Greenwood’s Bruce Hensley in his 24th season leading his alma mater.

Among the more startling story lines came out of the county’s southern regions.

Edinburgh, which was supposed to be in rebuilding mode after graduating every one of its starters from last season’s 23-3 Class A semistate qualifier, apparently never received the memo.
