THS Sweeps Gallatin In Lower Varsity Tilt
Trenton’s lower varsity boys basketball teams were in action at home on Tuesday night, playing host to Gallatin in a freshman-junior varsity doubleheader. Trenton took the freshman game 54-30 and then won the JV game 41-36.
In the freshman contest, Trenton edged ahead early, leading 10-6 after the opening quarter, then went on a run in the second to stretch the advantage to 27-10 by halftime. The Bulldogs continued to control the game on both ends of the floor in the second half, winning by 24 points in the end.
Trenton was paced by Eli Leininger, who had 14 points and seven rebounds. Connor Cotton added 10 points, two assists and a steal and Nate Swann finished with nine points and an assist. Corbyn Guile gave Trenton eight points, three steals and six assists while Jonathan Lamp recorded six points, six rebounds and two assists. Alex Parrack added four points and a steal and Tucker Franklin rounded out the Trenton total with three points.
“Eli had a great game inside the paint,” Trenton Coach Adam Clark said. “Nate shot extremely well, hitting three three-pointers and Corbyn also hit two three-pointers.
The freshmen will return to action on Monday, Jan. 27, playing host to LeBlond at 6 p.m.
The JV game was a bit closer as Trenton led throughout the game, but never by a lot. The Bulldogs held an eight-point lead following the third quarter, but the game only got closer in the final frame with Trenton holding on for the five-point win.
“This was one of those games that had a lot of missed opportunities,” Clark said. “We just couldn’t quite pull away. However, the boys never stopped competing and that’s what allowed them to finish with another win.”
Spencer Harris paced the JV squad with 13 points and five rebounds. Brice Dillon had eight points and four boards and Aaron Anderson finished with seven points and six steals. Guile added five points, Cotton had four and Colton Ellis and Ryan Hines each scored two points. Cotton added two steals and Ellis pulled down four rebounds.
“Corbyn Guile gave us several good minutes,” Clark said. “Harris played another solid game offensively.”
The THS JV boys return to the floor on Thursday, traveling to Hamilton for a single JV boys game which will be followed by two quarters for B team play. Tip off is set for 6 p.m.
