The Southeast boys basketball team had a strong effort in the 1A State Tournament with a 3rd place finish in a very competitive field. The Cyclones went 15-9 on the year and started state tournament play with a 47-34 victory over Farson-Eden. Hayden Anderson had 16 for the Cyclones and Sawyer Anderson chipped in 11. That put Southeast in the semi-finals to take on defending 1A champion Saratoga. The Cyclones had a tough night from the field in the 2nd half and dropped a 44-33 decision to the Panthers. Bodie Herring led the way with 16.

In the 3rd place game, Southeast drew Dubois and eeked out a 61-55 win thanks to 18 points from Hayden Anderson, 14 from Sawyer Anderson with Cord Herring throwing in 13. For the season, Hayden Anderson was an all-state selection for the 2nd time as he averaged 11 points per game. Bodie Herring also threw in 11 a game and was named all-state. The Cyclones had 2 players receiver all-conference distinction on Cord Herring and Sawyer Anderson.

After the season, the team and the community mourned the loss of head coach Crockett Herring who passed away in the first week of June. Herring was the Cyclones head man for 5 years with 3 state tournament appearances. Herring was also a one-of-a-kind athlete at Southeast who was named all-state in 4 sports; football, basketball, wrestling, and track, plus he competed in the Hiigh School National Finals Rodeo in the calf roping. He'll be sorely missed by the entire State of Wyoming.
