A Red and Green Christmas


Mon, Jan 4th, 2016
Posted in All Sports

The Houston Hurricanes boys and Rushford-Peterson’s basketball teams rolled to Christmas with wins.

Hurricane Boys

Improve to 9-0

Members of the Houston boys basketball team had plenty of positive stuff to tell grandmas, grandpas, and other relatives at Christmas. The Hurricanes beat LeRoy-Ostrander 89-66 to move to 9-0 on the season. The ‘Canes started with a 15-3 run and led by at least nine the rest of the way. The ‘Canes performed a feat they haven’t yet this year. They got three players to twenty points. Seniors Trevor Lundberg (23 pts, 9-14 FG’s, 4-4 FT’s, 14 rebs, 7 assists) and Austin Peplinski (20 pts, 8-15 FG’s, 7 rebs, 7 assists, 8 stls) were incredibly busy. James Loken, a 6’4” senior center, added a career-high 20 points (9-16 FG’s, 4-5 FT’s) with 11 rebounds. Micah Schutte chipped in 15 points and 5 steals. It’s the sixth time four or more Hurricanes have reached double digits this season. Peplinski, Lundberg, and Schutte have hit double figures in all of Houston’s games. Jason Carrier’s guys continued to shoot the ball well, as they were 50% from the field (36-72) and 78% (14-18) from the free throw line. That offensive efficiency has allowed the ‘Canes to score 70-plus in all but two games. They are averaging 74.8 points per contest. Houston (8-0, 9-0) goes to Christmas break a half-game ahead of #2 in Class A Spring Grove (7-0, 7-0) in the SEC East. They are the only two unblemished SEC squads. SG’s closest SEC game was a 41-pointer to Lyle/Pacelli. The Lions having been scoring 78-plus points per game while holding foes to a miniscule 27.4. Houston hosts Spring Grove on January 14, though their Holiday Tournament schedule (at FC and at Kingsland) also poses a challenge.

Trojans a Tough

Sweep of WK

Rushford-Peterson’s basketball teams each went to the Christmas break on winning streaks. They did so by performing a sweep of Wabasha-Kellogg. It wasn’t exactly an easy task. Both squads looked up at halftime deficits. The girls trekked to Wabasha and, after trailing by a couple at the break (22-20), put forth a strong 26-10 second half for the 46-32 win. Brianna Koop had 16 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists to lead the way. Ashley Agrimson added 12 points (6-9 FG’s), 8 rebounds, and 4 steals. Savannah Skalet also had 12 points (4-16 three’s, 6 rebs, 4 assists, 3 stls). The Trojans have won three straight. They are .....
