HUMBOLDT — Humboldt Middle School’s boys picked up a three-game sweep Thursday to wrap up the regular season.
The Cub eighth-graders downed visiting Fredonia, 26-21, in a reversal from a game earlier this season in which Humboldt lost by 11.
Meanwhile, Humboldt’s seventh grade wrapped up a 12-1 record with a 42-24 win. The C team finished the season at 10-2 with a 19-7 victory.
Head coach Jeremy Weilert was pleased with Humboldt’s performance.
The eighth-grade win “was probably the most complete game we have played all season,” Weilert said.
Jacob Barker led the Cubs with eight points, followed by Zach Korte with six. Lance Daniels chipped in with four points and eight rebounds, Hesston Murrow had three points and six boards, and Josh Vanatta and Caleb Hart added three and two points, respectively.
Humboldt’s B team was led by Bo Bigelow’s 13 points and Teryn Johnson’s eight points and 12 rebounds. Ryan Sellman added five, Xavier Bauer and Caleb Coronado had four apiece and Calvin Schoendaller, Dylan Doolittle, Joe Murrow and Tucker Hurst all had two. Hurst also pulled in seven rebounds.
“They are a talented group of young men that I anticipate will continue to work hard and get even better during this offseason,” Weilert said.
Leading the way in the C team victory was Sebastian Mock with six points and six rebounds, Chase Jaro with four points and five boards, Brent Yost and Seth Hegwald, each with two points, and Joe Murrow and Caleb Klauman with one apiece. Hegwald piled up 10 rebounds, followed by David Watts with seven.
“They worked hard and each of them improved as the year went on,” Weilert said. “I am very proud of them.”
HUMBOLDT’S girls dropped a pair of heartbreakers, while its C team wound up tied.
The A team fell, 39-33, while the B team dropped a 28-27 decision. The C team tied 4-4 in a 10-minute quarter.
Leading Humboldt’s A team were Maggie Johnson with 11 points and six steals, Rylan Wilhite with seven points and six rebounds, Sydney Houk with six points, Kassie Angleton with four points and seven rebounds and Kaiti Carpenter and Aricah McCall with three and two points, respectively.
