Surging Saline ends Weston winning streak

After winning their first four games of the 2022 portion of the basketball season Weston was primed to finally get back to the .500 mark for the first time since the second game of the season. Saline, who has put together a nice streak of their own since the Christmas holiday break would have none of that! 

The difference in the game was the uncanny marksmanship from the line that lifted the Bobcats to a 11-13 mark and their 5th win in their last six games. Saline made 25 of their 31 charity shots in the game for a 80.6% that included 16 of 19 in the final quarter to help stem a push from Weston, who now sits at 10-12 on the year. Conversely Weston made 6 of 10 from the foul line as Bryce Zehr and Eli McBride scored 8 apiece. 

The victory was even sweeter for Saline considering Klint Robinson’s squad had several sidelined due to Covid quarantine protocal. Shawn Staggs led the way with a season high 17 points followed by D.J. Rager-Ridley, who also posted a season best 11 points. 

Lady Wolves win 5th straight

Ask any succesful player and they will tell you that their teammates are like their family. What about when the assistant coach is really a family member of the head coach? Not only a family member but the sister head coach’s, brother? At Weston they have been successful with the real deal family leading the charge as Jennifer Tolar, who has been stepping in for Stacy Tucker recently and her brother Jeff McBride has led Weston to their fourth and fifth straight victory with wins over Claiborne Christian and Saline. The victories, which may be the first ever in school history where a sister and brother combined to coach a team. The back to back wins lifted the Lady Wolves to a 14-8 record overall.
