8th grade boys hosted a Conference game against Tippy Valley. After a slow start, the boys came around late in the first quarter. After a strong second quarter the boys took a 20-19 lead at the half. Came out in the second half and played better than the first half. They are still learning game situations. We forced some shots at the end that wasn’t needed. The boys improve there record to 3-3 overall and 2-0 in conference. We will be in action Thursday night at home against Indian Springs (Columbia City).
