Spartan boys JV basketball team season is 2-1

BAINBRIDGE - The Bainbridge High junior varsity boys basketball team’s season record stands at 2-1 so far this season following an epic win against South Kitsap 58-13 Thursday, Dec. 5.

“We were ahead 39-4 at the half,” explained JV Coach Henry Guterson. “Thomas Middleton had 11 points, knocking down three threes with his smooth shot.”

The win comes on the heels of another impressive victory Tuesday,

Dec. 3, against North Kitsap. The final score was 65-26 Bainbridge.

“We built a nice lead in the first and were never threatened,” Guterson said.

“Sawyer Conrad had 12 points and Daniel Locasio had 11.  Miles Gori took care of the paint for us, with nine points and 11 rebounds. Blake Bieber did a nice job at the point guard position, with five assists and three steals to go along with five points,” Guterson said. “Everyone on the team scored a point, which I always like to see.”

The hot shooting from Trey Town continued, as the Spartans sank 10 three-pointers.

The stats reflect a decided upward swing for the JV team, which lost its first game of the season Saturday, Nov. 30 against Sumner High, 44-35.

“Our opponent simply out-executed us,” Guterson said.

“They put us on our heels the entire game, and we didn’t handle their pressure and aggressiveness well,” the coach said. “We were down by just two at half, but they pulled away in the third.”

Guterson was quick to praise the team’s efforts in its debut game and cited two players specifically as standout performers.

“Sawyer Conrad had 10 points and Anders Tonsman had eight,” he said.
