  • Wesclin girls knock off Hillsboro, Freeburg

    Ally Isenhower sets up the offense against Hillsboro.

    Wesclin's girls basketball team reached the consolation finals in the Highland winter tournament last week, but ran out of gas in a 51-30 loss to Triad, who the Warriors had taken to overtime earlier this season. Back in regular season play, the Warriors bounced back Monday against Freeburg.

    The Warriors nearly coughed up a double-digit halftime in the third quarter, but regrouped in the final period to secure a spot on the consey finals.
    Zoe Christopher and Carly Haukapp scored 13 each and Maygen Mugele added ten for the Warriors, while Carrie Rakers snatched 15 rebounds to go with her eight points. Ally Isenhower added four and Cami Meddows three for Wesclin.

    Warriors split at Okawville

    Wesclin's boys basketball team split a quartet of games in last week's Okawville winter tournament. After losing to Okawville and Gibault to start the tournament on a sour note, the Warriors bounced back to win two games on Saturday. Wesclin guard Jarad Steenbergen was named to the all tournament team. Collectively, the Warriors made 40 three-point shots over the four-game span, including 15 in a heart-stopping win over Madison.

    Just days after beating the Rockets at Wesclin, the Warriors faced Okawville again to open the tournament. Wesclin fell behind by double digits in the first half and could never fully recover, despite a game-high 21 points from Jared Timmermann. No other Warrior reached double figures, as Jarad Steenbergen netted eight, and Brendan Bernhardt, Justin Goff, and Jake Stephens scored seven each.

    Gibault stole an inbounds pass with just over three seconds left and converted it into the winning basket in Wesclin's second tournament outing. Jarad Steenbergen drained seven three-pointers and scored a game-high 21 points to lead Wesclin. Justin Goff added 14, Brendan Bernhardt 13, Jake Stephens 11, and Jared Timmermann three to close out Wesclin's ledger.

    This time, it was Wesclin's turn to snatch a late-game victory in unlikely fashion, as Jarad Steenbergen's four-point play with eight seconds left proved to be the gamewinner. Steenbergen was fouled on a three-point attempt, which he swished, and converted the free throw to provide the Warriors with the winning margin. The junior guard scored 16 on the game, while teammate Jared Timmermann knocked down five treys on his way to a team-high 17 points. Brendan Bernhardt added 11, Jake Stephens 10, Justin Goff eight, and Mike Thoele three.
    To even get to Steenbergen's heroics, the Warriors had to overcome a 12-point fourth quarter deficit, which they did by scoring 24 points down the stretch, including seven three-pointers in the final frame.

    The Warriors won the tournament finale with an offensive display that featured overall balance, led by 24 points from Brendan Bernhardt and 21 from Jared Timmermann. Jarad Steenbergen netted 16 and Jake Stephens ten for Wesclin, while Mike Thoele added five and Justin Goff and Darrell Combs two each.
