The Arlington junior high boys basketball team traveled to Wahoo on Saturday morning for games against the Warriors.
Fort Calhoun was scheduled to appear, too, but didn't make the trip, leaving the Eagles on their own against the home squad. Wahoo won the capper against coach Jason Wiese's team, 50-26.
Arlington's Trent Koger stood out, scoring 13 of the Eagles' points. The eighth-grader dominated during the fourth quarter, notching all of his team's 10 points with two makes from beyond the 3-point line.
Kieryn Grothe and Colton Willmott also hit 3-pointers for Arlington, while Cooper Staats and Desmond Cole knocked down shots inside the arc. Oliver Ladehoff, Dallin Franzluebbers and Adam Elofson sank a free throw each as well.
“They're not scared to work hard during practice,” Wiese said when asked what he liked about his junior high team.
The Eagles prep for games like Saturday's on weekday mornings. Their coach said those sessions have been going well.
Fort Calhoun, meanwhile, won't compete again until Nov. 30 at Louisville. The school's activities calendar shows junior high boys basketball cancellations through Nov. 24.
