By Scott Schafer

Despite 15 points from junior point guard Tritton Tschida, the JV boys fell to Pierz 49-42 at Kimball Area High School Tuesday night, Jan. 18. The Cubs and the Pioneers were tied 19-19 at halftime. The Cubs, who were shorthanded in the second half, played competitively and passionately, but were unable to overcome the Pioneers second-half run. Sophomore Austin Roerick played lockdown defense, and contributed six points on the offensive end. Sophomore Preston Peglow also contributed seven points and three assists in one half of basketball.
