Tough Game Against Taft

Blaire Farrar
January 10, 2018 -- The Boys Fourths Basketball squad hosted Taft for their first home game of the season. It was a tough game, but the Highlanders worked hard all the way to the end. Coach Sisk complimented the team on their efforts, but also directed them to look at the scoreboard and remember the 17-81 final result. “This should hurt,” he said, “and we will play this team again. How we do in that game will show us whether we’ve improved. That will be our gauge.” Not inconsequential to the loss was the fact that one Taft player scored 41 of their team’s points. Two Highlanders put up their first baskets of the season: Ronin Kmeta-Suarez, followed by Tim Scheppe with 3-pointer. John Meyer was The Gunnery’s high scorer with 8 points, Nick Vogtland had 4, and Mathes Payne posted 2. Meyer and Vogtland had 4 rebounds apiece. The Boys Fourths tip-off against Avon away next Saturday.
