Prairie Heights gets the best of Fremont

The Fremont Eagle varsity basketball team was looking to stop its four-game slide by beating Prairie Heights on Friday.  Unfortunately, Jacob Heller proved to be too much to handle.  His 30 points was too much for the Eagles to have to overcome.  The Eagle team continued playing very hard and was close to getting a victory.  However, missed free throws, bad turnovers, and little mistakes were costly as the final score ended up at 61-54.  The Eagles did receive valuable contributions from many of their players. Jordon Schmucker played his best game of the year as he scored 19 points, grabbed 5 boards, and dished 3 dimes.  Alex Beams didn't have 33 this time, but his 10 points, 5 boards, and 2 steals was a solid contribution.  Austin Corcimiglia battled foul trouble all night.  He still contributed 9 points, 6 boards, 4 assists, and 3 steals.  Tony LaRose had 6 points and 4 boards, while Jake Bryant and Nate Beatty each had 4 points.  The loss dropped the team's record to 8-6 overall, 3-3 in the NECC.

The JV basketball team was looking to stop its own slide.  The team got off to a great start and played into two overtimes, but fell to Prairie Heights 28-24.  The team had its chances and they are aware that they should have taken the game and marked it in the win column.  However, the team didn't make the plays and hit the shots so Prairie Heights came away with the glory.  Playing well for the Eagles was Caleb Presley who grabbed 9 boards, scored 7 points, had 4 blocks, and 3 assists. Kraig Foley had 4 points, 4 boards, and 2 steals.  Tyler Meyer, Ryan Sichling, and Logan Miller each had a 3.  Finally, Colton Howe had 4 boards and a bucket.  The loss dropped the team's record to 6-8 overall, 2-4 in the NECC.  The team should be commended for their effort and heart in the game tonight.  They were beaten by this same team a couple of weeks prior by 13.  Great effort team and now it's time to learn how to win!
