Outside The County-Maconaquah
Results from Maconaquah for Friday, December 20th
The Braves won a TRC matchup with Whitko. The game was tied at halftime but a spirited group produced 22 steals for the game and won the 3rd quarter 22-5. This was the Braves 4th win in a row.
Coach Burrus Quote: “We struggled to stop Whitko in the first half. They have played a tough schedule and have a coach who has won over 400 games in Coach Benedict. At halftime we got back to what we do best. We pressured Whitko, and played in transition. We won the offensive rebounding 17-6. Ethan Zeiser(6) and Fuddy Kile(5) had 11 of them. People new to the program like me will ask about Fuddy. I just tell them I don’t know what Fuddy means but it fits him.
This was our last game before the break. I hope everyone enjoys the Christmas season. Merry Christmas!!!
Also, we play the County Tournament at home this year. We play Peru, Wednesday December 28th at 8pm. Try to support the girls as well. They play Peru earlier in the day. We will need your support to win this County.
This is kind of a homecoming for me being back in the Miami County Tourney. I graduated from North Miami. My junior year(1980-81) we won the County at Maconaquah. Bob Macy was the coach at Peru. Roger Fleetwood was the Maconaquah coach. He coached at Whitko just a few years ago. I played against Todd Bassett, Dave Fulton, Mike Gable, Joe Bontrager, Jeff Pier, Andy Jeffers, Jack Windsor and others for Maconaquah during those years. I know, over 40 years ago. When I coached at North Miami the tournament was shut down. I am glad it is back and happy to be representing Maconaquah.”
