Eagles take on state-ranked Canterbury, lose a nailbiter

February 9, 2013

The varsity boys' basketball team knew it had its hands full against the perennial powerhouse Canterbury Cavaliers. The team started really slow (1-12 opening score) and it appeared that Canterbury might run away with it early, but lineup adjustments and better play led to a 14 to 11 first quarter deficit. The halftime score was 25 to 25. Unfortunately, Canterbury made the necessary plays down the stretch to win the game including a big 3 by their starting point guard and timely free throws from their star player, VanHorn. The final tally of 57-48 was not indicative of just how well the team played in stretches. Leading Fremont in scoring was Tyler Jenkins whose 18 points, 6 boards, 6 assists, and 3 steals shows just how versatile of a player he is. Jordon Schmucker had 10 points, 6 steals, 5 assists, and 2 boards. Logan Peel played his best game and had 7 points, 10 boards, and 2 steals. Finally, Austin Corcimiglia had 6 points, 3 boards, and a steal. The loss put the team's record at 10-7. The team will be back in action on Friday when they take on the Central Noble Cougars.

I would like to take the time to thank everyone that attended the game on Saturday afternoon to commemorate Fremont Basketball's 1,000 point scorers. The ceremony was very special and it was nice to see all of the former players in attendance. The former players in attendance were: Dave Anspaugh, Stan White, Tim Ritter, Jamie LaRue, and finally Brooke Boggs Bastin. These former players are what make the current programs' success possible. Obviously, Tyler Jenkins breaking the scoring records is what made this program possible and I would be remiss to not talk about just how proud we are of him and his accomplishments. It'd be nice to be able to see him and the rest of the seniors play for several more weeks. 

The junior varsity boys' basketball team lost another tough game and fell to Canterbury by a score of 23 to 30.  The team was led by Jeremy Seiler (8 points) and Justin Papenbrock (6 points).  The loss put the team's record at 6-11 overall.
