CENTERBURG — Luke Ervin’s feet seemed to be floating over the court.

The 5-foot-10 Centerburg junior had just drained his third straight long-distance shot of the fourth quarter to help put Thursday’s game out of reach and keep his Trojans unbeaten.

“Throughout my whole career, from middle school, I’ve never had a winning season,” Ervin said after the game. “This feels good.”

The Fredericktown Freddies had led for most of their Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference game, but the Trojans took the lead for good thanks to Ervin’s first trey of the quarter with four minutes to go. The shots were part of a 24-4 run that gave the home Trojans a 45-39 victory over their archrivals.
