Warriors lost a tight game against North Pocono


Continuing their season with a 8-7 record, the boys basketball team lost a hard fought game      against North Pocono with a score of 53-42 on Jan. 24. 

“The game was huge, it would have gotten us right into the mix for the division,” head coach  Kris Holtzer said. “But the effort was there tonight, we just didn’t make smart enough plays down the stretch.” 

Senior Jake Brower scored 16 points with four three pointers, senior Ronnie McManus scored 13 points and junior Tommy Parker scored 10 points with two three pointers. According to coach Holtzer, during the second half, they were trying to swing the ball to get some movement on the court. 

“We just kept encouraging the guys to shoot because I thought we got good shots in the first half even though there were a lot of jumpers that we missed. They did a good job and kept battling,” coach Holtzer said.

Senior Tyee Irving made two out of two free throws, McManus made three out of five and Parker made two out of three. 

As stated by coach Holtzer, junior Jackson Corrie and Parker have done a great job playing defensively and McManus, Parker and Brower made some big shots for the team. 

Supporters are encouraged to come out and cheer on the boys tonight at Wallenpaupack Area High School at 6:45 p.m.

Spotlight Athlete: Jackson Corrie, JUNIOR 

“It’s hard to take him off the floor. I can tell him to guard a 6 ‘5 guy or a 5’ 10 guy, and he doesn’t care. He just wants to win and plays as hard as he can.”
