JH Boys Basketball Finish Season

The junior high boys played their final game of the season.  It was the varsity coming out on top by a score of Ellis 49 and Victoria 27.  The varsity got out to a fast start the first quarter and led by 11.  By the end of the half the lead was increased to 21.  Ellis outscored Victoria the third quarter and led by 24 points.  Leading the way for the varsity was Tyson Jimenez with 18 points followed by Sam Honas with 8, Mason Gottschalk 7, Nate Johnson 6, DJ Kinderknecht 4, Tate Roland 4, and Matthew Ernst 2.  Gottschalk grabbed 8 rebounds, Tate Roland had 6, Johnson 4, Honas 4, Jimenez 4, Ernst 2, and Easton Burton 2.  “It was nice to get all varsity members in the game for a lot of playing time.  The varsity’s overall record was 7 wins against 5 losses. Two losses came to TMP which won the MCEL tournament and one loss against Phillipsburg which placed second in the tournament.  We had a good year and the boys never gave up at any time” stated Coach Wolf.

The B team was also victorious by defeating Victoria  by a score of Ellis 19 and Victoria 16.  Scoring for the B team were Bryson Luea 6, Matthew Ernst 5, Jarrett Mader 2, DJ Kinderknecht 2, Carson North 2, Tate Roland 1, and Dakota Metzler 1.  Luea grabbed 3 rebounds while Daniel Crawford 2, and Tat Roland 2. 
 The last couple of games saw the C team playing each other as the other teams did not have enough players on their roster to play.  This was a good thing as they would not have any time on the court.


I would like to thank the parents, relatives, friends, and fans that supported us throughout the season,
Coach Wolf
