The Squires junior varsity got back on the winning track with a win at Winamac. The Squires got off to a fast start as they hit their first several shots. Leading the early charge was freshman Maddox Zolman as he hit his first three shots. Winamac then shifted their defense to a box and one to slow the squires. The Squires found themselves down at the half but clawed their way back in the third. The goal in the 4th quarter was to reduce their lead to one possession midway through the 4th.
