Thursday, Dec. 2nd, G-R 8th grade boys basketball team opened the season in Radcliffe, against South Hardin. G-R won the contest 51 to 27, now 1-0 overall. We played an up tempo game style with a lot of hustling and defense 1st thinking and it paid off holding one of the more talented teams to 27 points. The 8th grade Rebels have 9 players on this year team.
We did a great job of overall team work, always passing and looking for the open player, pushing the ball up the floor with quick short passes as this 8th grade team is very unselfish they just want to win. Leading the Rebels in scoring was Tyler Eiffler with 16 points followed by Brock Bysticky 12 pts. & Colton Dinsdale 10 pts., then Dalton Schwartz 6 pts., Eric Stoakes 5 pts. and Jake Schuman 2 pts., other players contributing in just as important areas of rebounds and steals were Bryce Clark 1 steal and 4 rebounds, Josh Cooley 1 steal and 4 rebounds, & Jake Mohlis 3 steals.
