From Herald Staff Reports
Wrestling meets and road basketball battles highlighted this past weekend’s prep sports action.
Here’s a brief rundown of what you might have missed.
Jeeps 46, Wolverines 45: In a game that was tightly contested throughout and came down to White River Valley missing a last-second heave, Northeast Dubois held on to improve to 4-1 on the season.
The Jeeps saw a solid performance from junior guard Reece Bauer down the stretch as he finished with 23 total points (nine of them came in the fourth quarter) while senior Logan Dodd followed up his 13-point outing against Orleans with a 12-point night in the win on Saturday.
The Jeeps will be back in action this Saturday against conference foe Forest Park.
Hatchets 74, Patriots 57: A night after they dropped 101 points on North Posey, Heritage Hills struggled to get much going at the Hatchet House as they fell on the road to Washington.
The Patriots fell behind 35-24 at the halftime break and never fully recovered. The Hatchets would go on to outscore Heritage Hills 39-33 in the second half to come away with the win.
Simon Scherry (season-high 23 points) and Murray Becher (22 points) both had solid nights but Washington’s Grant Niehaus did even better with his 35-point outing in the victory.
Wildcats 63, Golden Aces 38: After jumping out to a 31-19 halftime lead, Jasper never looked back in their road victory over conference foe Mount Carmel to improve to 2-0 in Big Eight play.
Jasper’s biggest quarter came directly after halftime as they outscored the Golden Aces 17-8 and ended any hope of a Mount Carmel comeback.
Reagan Egbert led the Cats with a season-high 16 points while Brooke Nottingham and Kortney Ruhe both added 10 each. Egbert also finished with eight rebounds and five assists while Nottingham added four steals.
Cats place fourth in Big Eight: The Jasper boys wrestling team traveled to Princeton to compete in the Big Eight Duals. The Cats finished fourth overall in the tourney. Boonville won the tournament.
Jasper fell to Boonville, Mount Carmel at Mount Vernon but defeated Princeton in the tourney.
Pats defeat Raiders at PAC duals: The Heritage Hills wrestling team came away champions at the PAC dual meet by defeating Southridge 36-29 in the title match.
