The Magazine Sr High Rattlers got their first win of the season on December 13 when they hosted the Western Yell County Wolverines. With a final score of 57-45, this game puts the Rattlers on the map with a 1-4 season record. The fire in the snake pit was ignited after WYC hit a three-pointer giving Magazine the push that they needed. Once the Rattlers found their place on top, they never relinquished the power.
Cameron Raggio kept a strong offensive pace the entire game leading the Rattlers with 23 points. Josh Brackett gave the boot to the Wolverines by putting up 14 points. Ashton Droemer lit up the board with six points. Jacob Hall and Brady Watson made their presence known with five points each. And Jack Kirbo and Nate Bryan secured two buckets apiece.
“The boys are really starting to come together as a team,” stated Head Coach Buck Chappell. “With a previous turnover average of 23 a game, the Rattlers were able to knock that down to 13. We played without Kaeden Trejo but he is planning to be back in action in our next game.” The Magazine Rattlers will next face the Golden Arrows at Lavaca on Tuesday, December 17 for their first conference game of the season. Games will start at 5 p.m.
