The Vanguard Basketball JV Boys team opened their season with a difficult game against McGregor, and were unable to come away with a win. The ups and downs of a first game were definitely evident, but the future looks bright and this team will continue to improve and get better as their season is just getting started. James Merchant led the team with 8 points.
The Varsity Boys played a very good McGregor team and earned a very good 71-49 victory. With a 5 point lead at the half, the boys explode for 43 points in the 2nd half to run away from the Bulldogs. Spencer Davis led the team with 18 points, and Elijah Wade added 17 points, with 2 electrifying dunks! The boys will return to action over the break at the MT Rice tournament.
The Varsity Girls fell behind big early against Eagle Christian and played very well in the 2nd half winning that 18-17, but it wasn’t enough in dropping the game to ECA. Halle Harmon led the girls with 12 points, and all the girls showed a lot of heart competing in the 2nd half.
Great job to all of the boys and girls last night!
