This year the seventh grade boys basketball team consists of the following young athletes: Tyler Pierce, Parker Bown, Erik Knaack, Joe Smoldt, Matt Roeding, Alex Tscherter, Spencer Goos, Thomas Mussig, Jaden McGhee and Jed Peterson.
On Dec. 1st, 2011, we traveled to Radcliffe to take on the South Hardin Tigers. Following a power outage in the eighth grade game the young Rebels went to the court for their very first game of their career.
The first half saw the Rebels jump out early by using pressure defense which lead to some high percentage baskets. The half ended with the Rebels leading with a 20-18 edge.
Coming out of the locker room the Rebels continued to force the Tigers to handle the pressure. The second half saw all of our players get the needed court time as we are only in our first game. When the buzzer sounded, the young Rebels prevailed with a 38-18 victory.
Scoring for the game is as follows: Parker Bown-4 pts., Erik Knaack-4 pts., Joe Smoldt-24 pts., Matt Roeding-2 pts., and Thomas Mussig-4 pts.
