Like all other sports, the boys basketball team has had to make adjustments in order to have a season. So far the team has not confronted any quarantine road blocks, punching in a total of 7 games thus far.
On Saturday, January 10, our Vikings (3-3) faced off against Big Walnut (4-3) at home in a tight nailbiter.
A late addition to the schedule, Big Walnut included a dynamic team of players against which the boys had not regularly faced. Senior Miles Walter says, “Big Walnut is a very good team that was coming off a few really big wins, so we knew we were going to have a tough game on our hands.”
That said, our Vikings held their own in the matchup, winning 52-50.
Standouts in this game included forward Kevin Reeves’22, who dominated defensively with three blocks, and guards Tanner Compton’22 and Jared Kass’21, who energized the Viking offense with explosive bursts to the rim, each totaling 16 points.
The Vikings hope to carry this momentum into next week with two conference games. They will be facing rival Worthington Christian away on Tuesday, January 12 and Grandview Heights at home on Saturday, January 16.
