-The 7th grade boys basketball team hosted the Spearfish Spartins in a barn burner of a game.  With the Patriots down by 2 going into the fourth quarter. Isaiah Brewer and Kris Dorsey went on a scoring spree and out scored the Spartins 14 to 6 in the fourth quarter giving the Patriots a 47 to 41 victory.  Key free-throws down the stretch paid off.  All scorers were led by Isaiah Brewer with 29 and Kris Dorsey with 17. With the help of Logan Amaral, Cooper McGoldrick, Lane Paulsen, and Zander Doulder the Patriots pulled off a huge upset.  Awesome game Team!  Record 15 & 2.  The team travels to Lead/Deadwood to play in the Cartwright Tournament on Friday.  Good Luck Boys!

-  The 7th grade boys basketball “B” team also hosted the Spearfish Spartins in another barn burner. Unfortunately, the team came up two points short as they went down in defeat 20 to 22.  All scorers were led by Zander Doulder with 6 points and great defense by Levi Brandt.  Good job boys!
