Basketball! The competition was fierce. The boys’ game ended with RMMS on top by three points over the Patriots 38-35. The difference of a three-point shot settled the boys’ game, which began at 4:45. The boys played hard defense the entire game but the RMMS team was better at rebounding and executing plays in the clinch. Standouts included Will Cline, Dylan Bryan and Brian Ward for CAMS and for the RMMS victors, Zach Kelly, Justin Nichols and Thomas Kennedy. For more pics of the game.
The girls’ teams came into the gym both undefeated. A fan base packed the space and lined the walls. This was a serious shoot out that went into overtime when Kennedi VanRavenstein of the Starz made a three pointer in the last seconds of regulation. The teamwork of the Patriots prevailed as their star guard Emily Wampler had fouled out by overtime. Nonplussed, Skye Jordan, Reanna Hamm, Ashley King and the extreme hustle of Morgan Hufford playing with a twisted ankle kept the CAMS victory intact by one point 46-45. Other Starz of note were Meaghan Catron and Emily Helms but every player on both teams who hit the wood was a standout in teamwork.
The high school coaches at LBHS and JRHS will be happy with the players heading their way in the next year or two!
