The Bobcats put on a show at the Dodson Junior High Basketball Tournament this weekend! Both teams faced the Calvin Cougars in the semi-final rounds. Unfortunately, despite considerable improvements in their teamwork, the girls' team was defeated.
It was a dominating 37 – 2 win for the Boys' team in the semi-final round. MVP 8th grader Rylan Mauthe was on fire at both ends of the court. He posted 29 points and 15 steals against Calvin, propelling the Bobcats to the Tournament Final against the Quitman Wolverines.
In the Tournament Championship, the Bobcats impressed everyone with their development as a team. Eighth graders Braydon Robinson, Elijah Calloway, and Eduardo Quintana worked together throughout the game to light up the scoreboard. Gavin Bellard, also an eighth grader, was a huge key to victory defensively. Every member of the team contributed significantly to the championship win.
Overall, both teams proved that the Saline Bobcats are a force to be reckoned with this season! It's a GREAT YEAR to be a BOBCAT!
