There’s basketball. And then there is Waldron Jr High Bulldog basketball. The Jr Dogs possess a basketball maturity that most don’t see until high school. Their skills and ability to control the game are a step above the rest. And after last night’s game against the West Fork Tigers, the Jr Bulldogs yet again brought to life these characteristics. Waldron reigned in their twelfth win of the season and first conference win making them 12-2 and 1-0.
The Bulldogs started the first quarter taking their time feeling out the situation before sinking their teeth into the Tigers. Waldron went on to put the cats back in the cradle by taking the win 47-34. The Bulldogs ended with four assists and 14 steals with Trenton Hunt taking seven of those.
Lidge Stinson was the offensive guru racking up 18 points followed by Hunt with 16. Peyton Lipham was too quick to be touched as he secured six points. And Trevor Hunt and Chris Lopez combined for seven points. With a total of 27 rebounds, the Bulldogs weren’t afraid to get right up in all the action.
Trenton led with eight rebounds, Trevor trailed with six. Stinson delivered three. Lopez, Petey Justice, and Dristen Hill snagged two each. And Lipham and Jon Jon Valdez netted one apiece. The Jr Bulldogs will next stay home and host rivals the Mansfield Tigers on Thursday, December 19 with 7th grade starting at 4:30 p.m.
