The Uniontown Eagles faced the Southern Coffey County Titans in our last home game of the season. This game was also Senior Night, serving to honor our seniors (and their families) who participate in basketball, wrestling, and band. Both Varsity teams won, but the girls’ JV lost to the Titans by one point.
The Varsity girls beat the Titans 37 to 29. Karleigh Schoenberger and Danielle Howard once more lead with points, scoring 15 and 13, respectively. Schoenberger also had 3 rebounds, an assist, and 3 steals, while Howard had 2 rebounds, 2 assists, and 3 steals. Gwenyth Fry scored 4 points and had 3 rebounds, and Sivanah McAnulty and Alie Fuhrman each scored 2 points. Sammie Hampton had 6 rebounds.
The Varsity boys also won against SCC, with a score of 61 to 28. Luke George and Hunter Schaaf scored 16 and 14 points, respectively; George also had 2 assists and 4 steals, while Schaaf had 7 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals. Jake Harvey had 9 points and 5 steals. Luke Perry and Cade Goodridge each scored 5 points, and the rest of the board is pretty even on scoring. Fan-favorite Kord Bowen sunk a 3-pointer in the last minute of the game, thanks in part to the great sportsmanship showed by the Titans.
Coach Hays commented, “I’m really happy for our seniors tonight. They all played really well and capped off with a 3 pointer from Kord Bowen. These seniors are really good leaders for our team and, more importantly, great people. I’m excited for their future when they leave Uniontown High School.”
