SR Raiders 8th grade refuse to let SwH heartbreaker loss deplete their focus

Gary Franklin

South Ripley eighth grade boys basketball Coach Jeff Greiwe relayed a heartbreaker conclusion with the one-point loss to the Southwestern Hanover Rebels, 52-53, played at Hanover on Dec. 5. Coach Greiwe stated, “Southwestern’s Foster Mefford hit a contested layup at the buzzer to give the host Rebels a 53-52 win.”

The loss breaks their nine game winning streak. Bryce Franklin hit a spinning layup to break a 48-48 tie with under a minute to play and Cody Samples added two free throws, but it wasn’t enough as the Rebels were able to escape with the victory. Lane Sparks paced the Raiders with 23 points, Franklin finished with 11, Samples scored all 9 of his points from the foul line, Jacob Jines hit a three-pointer, and Colby Bush, Dillon Binion, and Brady Linkel all added two-point buckets. The streak breaker leaves the eighth grade team at 9-2 for the season.
