Bulldogs Middle School Hoopsters Get Wins

The Batesville Bulldogs 7th Grade team moved to 8-2 on the year with a 44-11 victory over Benjamin Rush Middle School.

It was all Batesville from the beginning. The dogs cranked up the pressure with a full-court press that really shook the opponent, forcing them into numerous turnovers. Halftime score 27-4. The Bulldogs ran the floor very well in transition getting a lot of easy baskets right at the rim. Batesville never let up.

Scoring for the dogs; Brayden Maple (13), Ethan Schneider (8), Cayden Drake (6), Trenten Luers (6), Cannon Clark (4), Lincoln Garrett (3), Kain Ryan (2), and Landon Raver (2).

The 8th-Grade Boys’ Basketball hosted North Decatur and won by a final score of 50-23.

The Bulldogs got off to an early lead thanks to a couple 3’s by Will Jaisle as they headed into the second quarter with a 12-6 lead. North Decatur fired back hitting three 3’s of their own in the second quarter which helped close the gap. Strong rebounding in the first half helped Batesville maintain a 24-18 lead heading into halftime. The second half was a different story defensively for Batesville. The Bulldogs held North Decatur to just 5 points and outscored their opponent 26-5 in the second half. 

Leading all scorers for Batesville was Cade Kaiser with 17 points, followed by Will Jaisle (12), Gage Pohlman (8), Carson Laker (5), Jacob Stenger (4), Christian Stenger (2), and Carson Schneider (2).

The Bulldogs improve to 9-1 on the season. It was a great team win as they head into the SEI Tournament next week.
