Blaise Beauchamp, freshman, shoots a corner three against the Washington Warriors. The Royals beat the Warriors 87-73.

The HHS boys basketball team is currently 14-5 and coming off back-to-back wins. A big part of their success this season has been Blaise Beauchamp, freshman, who is currently averaging 13.3 points per game.

At the beginning of the season it didn’t seem like Beauchamp was a big part of the team, but he’s been getting more and more minutes which has been leading to more points. He is a great playmaker and is phenomenal from beyond the arc.

He has also been able to help the team with his ball handling skills and his ability to bring the ball up.

“His biggest contribution to the team is how he spreads the floor with his ability to shoot. We are also confident with him being the main ball handler and point guard,” Simon Wright, senior, said.

Beauchamp just came off a game vs. Washington Warriors where he scored 17 points and the game before that he scored 20 points against Minnetonka.

Beauchamp who didn’t play much last year, has done a lot of work over the offseason and in practice to get where he is now.

“The biggest improvement I made was gaining confidence in myself and getting stronger over the offseason,” Beauchamp said.

The Royals aren’t having as good of a season as last year but lately, they have been looking unstoppable, thanks to Beauchamp’s performances.

“A big reason to our success is that we are playing together and as one,” Beauchamp said. “We want to make it back to the state tournament and get another shot at the championship.”

Beauchamp and the Royals travel to Annandale to play tonight, Feb. 7, and will host the Hornets on Fri., Feb. 10 in their second game against them.
