8th grade boys’ basketball wrap-up
The Washington High School boys’ basketball program should be optimistic considering the quality of incoming talent for next winter. The Washington Middle School boys’ eighth-grade basketball team just completed a very successful season.
Coach Mark Berhow said of the team, “Coach Roder and I are very proud of the progress and effort of all our players this year. We have had them for two seasons and have seen a great deal of improvement from their first year to this year. We wish them the best in their future athletic pursuits. This group is an excellent example of good sportsmanship and being coachable.”
Jaivonn Willis got the “triple crown” for Washington this season, leading the team in points with 137, rebounds with 72 and steals with 25.
The “A” team averaged just over 52 points per game and allowed an average of 32.1 points per game, meaning they averaged winning their games by a margin of 20 points. That’s a number that Washington boys’ basketball fans should be enthused about, considering the fact that their competition will remain consistent.
The “A” team finished with a record of 7-3, the “B” team finished at 8-1-1 and the “C” team finished at 7-1.
