by Adelay Martin, UHS Student Sports Media Reporter
The Uniontown Eagles faced the Crest Lancers on Friday night, January 31. Both Varsity teams took victory over the Lancers. We also had a teachers’ cheering section in the stands, which helped both teams out with morale.
The girls’ Varsity beat the Lancers 66 to 50. Danielle Howard had 24 points, 9 rebounds, 8 assists, and 6 steals. Karleigh Schoenberger had 18 points and 3 assists. Breleigh Harris had 3 assists. Sammie Hampton had 11 points and 6 rebounds. Coach Miller remarked, “To use a quote from Larry Bird, ‘It does not matter who scores the points, it’s who can get the ball to the scorer.’ That was definitely the theme for tonight. I’m glad that we are starting to see the court better. This will definitely help moving forward. We will play the Chetopa Hornets on Tuesday, February 3 at 6 pm at home.”
The Varsity boys also beat the Lancers, coming out 54 to 46. Jake Harvey scored 21 points and had 11 rebounds, 5 assists, and 6 steals. Luke George had 11 points and 3 assists. Clay Sutterby had 5 rebounds and Hunter Schaaf had 7 rebounds. Coach Hays said, “I thought the atmosphere for our game tonight was electric. The student section and teacher cheer section really brought the energy. Free throws continue to be an area we need to improve on. I liked our defensive effort tonight, especially Drew Perry on their best shooter. It was a total team effort tonight.”
