JV Boys Win Tournament Title, Girls Win In Lathrop
The Trenton junior varsity boys basketball team scored a big win over the weekend, capturing the Gallatin JV Tournament championship with a 49-38 victory over Gallatin in the title game. Trenton’s JV girls team also picked up a win over the weekend, defeating Lathrop 38-26 on the road on Friday.
The Trenton boys battled through a close first quarter, leading Gallatin by a single point after the opening frame. The Bulldogs went on a 15-4 run in the second quarter, however, and took a comfortable lead into the locker room at halftime. Trenton outscored the host school by a point in the third quarter as well and then weathered a run by Gallatin in the final quarter of play, winning the game, and the tournament title, by 11 points.
“I thought the boys played extremely well for three and a half quarters,” Bulldogs’ Coach Adam Clark said. “In the last part of the fourth, Gallatin took the momentum away and made a run at us. Fortunately, we were able to hit some timely shots to give us a small lead to hold onto.”
Leading Trenton in the win was Spencer Harris, who had 11 points. Colton Ellis added eight points and three steals and Connor Cotton added seven points, six rebounds and two steals. Aaron Anderson added six points, five rebounds, six steals and two assists and Ryan Hines had six points, two steals and two assists. Jonathan Lamp scored five points and Corbyn Guile had three.
With the win, Trenton’s JV boys remained perfect on the season, moving to 10-0 overall.
The Trenton girls trailed by a point after the first quarter and found themselves down seven at the break. Trenton chipped away a bit at the lead in the third quarter but entered the final frame still down, 26-21. In the fourth Trenton went off, outscoring Lathrop 17-0 to roar back and take the game by 12 points.
Tenna Roberts had 16 points, five rebounds and five steals to lead the Lady Bulldogs and Lana Raymo added 12 points and four steals. Trenton also got four points, eight rebounds and three assists from Jaylen Neff and five points and three steals from Hannah Kennebeck. Shayla Woodside had one point and five rebounds and Jordain Oshel finished with three assists and a pair of rebounds.
“The girls did a great job of coming back tonight,” Lady Bulldogs’ Coach John Cowling said. “I think the seven-point deficit was our biggest of the season. Our guards did a great job of putting pressure on and using their speed to get to the basket. The fourth quarter was probably our best seven minutes of basketball this season.”
With the win, the Trenton JV girls moved to 7-1 on the season.
Trenton will host LeBlond in a freshmen-junior varsity boys’ doubleheader tonight at 6 o’clock. Trenton is also at home Tuesday night, playing host to Chillicothe in a girls-boys’ junior varsity doubleheader, which also tips off at 6 p.m.
