Aviators Soar Over Wave







The Butler Aviators are one of the toughest opponents that Greenville will face all season.  The team has 2 dominating post players with Brian Johnson being the feature player for Aviators – he made plays on both offense and defense – punctuating his night with back to back dunks in the 2nd quarter when they made a run to break the game open.  But Greenville did not help their cause with their turnovers.  The Aviators were able to convert steals into points with baskets scored in transition.  It was a frustrating night for the Wave, they would fall 85-29.

Greenville scoring:  Ethan Saylor 5, Grant Minnich 3, Tyler Becky  5, Noah Walker 5,  Will Coomer 5, Noah VanHorn 6.

South Beats Dixie









TVS  5  15  7  12  39
Dixie 7   9   9   10  35

Scoring for Twin Valley South: Mylan Crews 14, Kelsie Shafer 9, Evelyn Woodgeard 8, Mckenzie Neal 4, Alexis Bennett 2, Abby Robertson 2 
TVS Record: 3-3

Scoring for Dixie: Sydney Creamer 15, McKinlee Ruppert 12, Kalyn McQueen 3, Gaby Bates 3, Madeline Betts 2, 
Dixie Record: 1-6

It was a contest between the gritty defense of South against the rebounding ability of Dixie.  Dixie did a good job of pulling in rebounds and controlling the boards, but South was able to capture turnovers and get points in transition.  The end of the game saw Dixie sending South to the foul line, where they were able to convert their chances into points and maintain their lead.

Coach Rike
"This was a battle down the final minutes. The Panthers were led by Mylan Crews with 14 points, 8 of which came from the free throw line. Mylan's six points from the free throw line in the 4th quarter proved to be the difference in the ball game."
