Warriors drop first two at Lebanon
Wesclin's boys basketball team lost its first two games of the season last weekend, both in Lebanon Thanksgiving tournament action.
The Warriors fell to the top-ranked AA team in Illinois in Nashville to open the tournament on Friday, then lost to Madison on Saturday before the tournament recessed until this week. Wesclin took on the host Lebanon team on Tuesday night, and will play at either 3 or 4:30 p.m. in Saturday's championship round.
Nashville 59, Wesclin 36
The Warriors hung in against the state's top-ranked Class AA team for a while, trailing just 14-11 after a quarter, but Nashville sprinted to a 16-point halftime lead by virtue of a 19-6 advantage in the second frame.
Overmatched under the basket, Wesclin wasn't able to get the kind of three-point shooting it needed to compete in the game, making just four of 24 attempts from beyond the arc.
A trio of guards led the scoring effort, as Alex Smith scored 13, Jarad Steenbergen 12, and Jared Timmermann 10 to pace the Wesclin column. Darrell Combs scored seven, Justin Goff three, and Jake Stephens one for Wesclin.
Madison 85, Wesclin 54
Madison sprinted to a 40-24 halftime lead and never looked back against Wesclin, who had ten players crack the scoring column. Jarad Steenbergen scored 15 for Wesclin, and Jared Timmermann joined him in double figures with 14. Alex Smith netted seven, Darrell Combs four, and Justin Goff and Mike Thoele three each. Cameron Cathcart, Nathan Powers, Jake Stephens, and Nick Thoele each scored two points.
Wesclin girls split at Piasa
Wesclin's girls basketball team sits at 3-3 on the season after splitting four games in the Piasa Southwestern tournament and losing a conference matchup with Carlyle Monday night.
Wesclin's Zoe Christopher was named to the all tournament team at Piasa.
Piasa 43, Wesclin 31
No Wesclin player reached double figures in the loss, as Ally Isenhower led the way with nine points and Zoe Christopher added eight. Carrie Rakers scored six for Wesclin, Ali Brueggemann four, and Carly Haukapp two.
Wesclin 62, Highland JV 45
Zoe Christopher scored 15 points, Ali Brueggemann 14, Carly Haukapp 12, and Carrie Rakers 10 to lead Wesclin past the Highland junior varsity team. Ally Isenhower added six, Mayghen Mugele three, and Cami Meddows two for the Warriors
Calhoun 76, Wesclin 55
Calhoun used a decided size advantage to ease past Wesclin. Zoe Christopher scored 19 points to lead the way for the Warriors, while Carrie Rakers added 14 and Ally Isenhower 11. Ali Brueggemann contributed six points, Carly Haukapp three, and Mayghen Mugele two.
Carlyle 72, Wesclin 71
The Warriors stepped into conference play and found themselves in the midst of a thriller Monday night, when they took Carlyle to overtime before falling by a point.
Zoe Christopher scored 19 for Wesclin, and Carrie Rakers (17) and Ally Isenhower (12) joined her in double figures. Mayghen Mugele added eight points, Ali Brueggemann and Carly Haukapp seven each, and Erin Johnson one to close out the Wesclin book.
