Congratulations to the Varsity Boys Basketball team for their 65-30 victory over Falls City, Nebraska in the Steve Vertin Classic at LeBlond High School on Saturday (1/4/20). Kason Mauzey led a balanced Benton scoring attack with 16 points. Three other Cardinals also finished in double figures as Allan Coy tallied 15 points, Chol Ater chipped in 11 points and Kamren Caine added 10 points.
Special thanks to LeBlond High School for hosting this tremendous event in honor of Coach Vertin and his coaching legacy in both Missouri and Nebraska. It was a tremendous privilege and honor to participate in this event as Coach Vertin spent a few years as an Assistant Boys Basketball Coach at Benton.
Good luck to the Cardinals, now 6-2 overall on the season, as they will host St. Pius in the MEC opener for both schools on Thursday (1/9/20). The C-Team (Modis Gym) and JV (Springer Gym) will play simultaneously at 5:30 PM against St. Pius on Thursday and the Varsity will follow at 7:00 PM in the Springer gym. Hope to see you there!
GO CARDINALS! “WANT IT NOW!” #WIN
