MT. PLEASANT—Consistency continued to be an issue for the North Sanpete boys’ basketball team as they went 1-1 in last week’s region slate.
The Hawks won a close game against Maeser Prep, 62-57, but fell to American Leadership in the following game, 49-38, last Friday. The loss moved North Sanpete’s record to 4-6 overall with a 1-1 mark in Region 14.
