The Oakridge Boys JV Basketball Team ended the season on a high note by beating Western Michigan Christian 65 – 58 in non-conference action. The Eagles ended the season with a 17-3 record and finished 14-0 in conference for first place. The game went as many have this year. A strong 3rd quarter propelled us to victory. We managed to make key free-throws down the stretch and hold on to a solid victory.
Scoring was very balance in this contest, as it has been all year long. Leading the team in scoring was Luke Martin with 14, Coco Watson, Austin Fairchild and Kolbe Stewart each added 13. Tyler Carlson added 9. Jon Terpenning and Sander Brott chipped in 2 and 1 respectively.
This team finished a great season, even though there were many changes throughout the year. For a team that started with 12 players and ended with 7 dressed players (Mason Wever was injured) on Thursday night, they fought through that adversity and excelled despite it. I’m extremely proud of how well this group of guys played hard and unselfishly throughout the year and if they continue to work hard, they have great things ahead of them.
Congrats on winning the conference (14-0) and your 17-3 record!!
