The junior varsity Bears won the Norwood Tournament for the second year in a row. This year’s team won over Norwood, then Gainesville, and then beat Thayer.
“It was a good win,” said Coach Dustin Forrest.
The key to the tournament victory was the team’s defensive game, said Forrest.
“We played defense well in the whole tournament. They never gave up more than 25 points, and they won every game by [at least] 20 points,” said Forrest.
The win was especially impressive because the Bears lost one of their starting players in the second game. Ryan Koehler fell on the hardwood and broke his arm in the game against Gainesville. Koehler was the leading rebounder for the JV Bears this season.
Ryan has been one of our leaders and works his tail off and he’s really improved,” said Coach Forrest. It is likely Koehler will be out of play for the rest of the season.
After the win at Alton over the weekend, the JV team is 6 and 2 for the season.
