Vision screenings for 6th and 8th grade students are this morning.  

The 7th grade boys traveled to Chisago Lakes and came away with two wins.  The A team played its most complete game of the year both on the offensive end but more importantly on the defensive end.  They beat the Wildcats 52-26.  Kale H. and Nick O., who had his best game of the year, each led the way with 10 pts.  Tyson R. played well on the defensive end and finished with 6 pts.  Colton S. and Andrew E. each contributed 5 pts.  Brandon L. and Jack C. each had 4 pts.  Garrett P., Jack S., Semaj H., Zach J. each chipped in 2 pts.  The Blue B team won their game 27-23.  Ben F. led the team with 16 pts.  Tyler Y., Will S., Michael M., Carter C., and Sam D. each had 2 pts.  Calvin K. chipped in 1 pts.  It was another fast paced win for the 7th grade Gold team last nightover West, 35-21. Our guards shot the lights out tonight, led by Bryce S. and Tyren C., both with 13 points. Luke T. had had 6 hard fought points and a handful of rebounds. Noah N. ran the point and contributed 2 points and a few assists and Nolan G. had 1 point and a few key rebounds. Nice win Knights!

The 8th grade Boys basketball teams are pulling things together and are starting to play some great ball.  After the A team earned their first win of the season this past Saturday against Middle School West, 40-38, they pulled off their second victory of the season in dramatic fashion yesterday afternoon in Chisago Lakes. Trey F. hit a fall away 3 pointer at the end of the overtime session to break a tie game and propel the Knights to a 47-44 victory over the Wildcats.  Trey F. finished the game with 24 points, and dominated the game whenever he touched the ball. Brandon S. converted a huge 3 point play in OT to keep the Knights within striking distance, and finished with 8 points.  The A teams’ record now sits at 2 wins and 3 losses. The Blue B team improved its’ record to 3 and 2 on the season with an excellent team win- 40-25 over the Wildcats. The boys jumped out to an early 18 to 11 halftime lead and cruised to the victory.  Five of the Eight Knights who played in the contest, scored at least 2 points, led by Tommy R. and Travaris R., who each put in 12. The Knights carved up the Chisago Lakes defense with quick passing and getting the ball to their open teammates.  The  8th Gold B team battled back late against West but  came up short losing 39-35.  Hunter G. led the team with 11 points. 

Have a great day.
