Meigs’ Teams Combine for Even 2-2 Week< < Back to
Marauder basketball collectively went 2-2 this past week, with milestones reached and upsets made over the course of the past seven days.
Meigs Girls Basketball:
The Meigs girls’ team went 1-1 this week, losing to River on Friday before beating Woods County Christian on Saturday.
Against the River Pilots, Mallory Hawley scored 14 and Kassidy Betzing added 13, and the pair shot a combined 9 for 11 from the free-throw line, but it was not enough as Meigs was outgunned 48-58.
The next day while facing off with the Woods County Christian Wildcats, Kassidy Betzing scored her 1,000th point as one of her 14 while her Marauders came away with a emphatic 61-11 victory. Betzing joined a rarified group of elite high schoolers and helped her team to a win as Meigs reached an 8-4 record on the season. Marissa Noble and Madison Fields joined Betzing in double-digit scoring with 15 and 12, respectively. Jarrod Kasun’s squad faces Vinton County next on Monday, Jan. 14.
Meigs Boys Basketball:
The Meigs Boys also went .500 on the week, winning their Friday game against Morgan before narrowly losing to Whitehall-Yearling on Saturday.
The Marauders dispatched the Morgan Raiders 70-60 at home Friday, despite the Raiders being a division higher than Jeremy Hill’s club. On Saturday, Meigs was tasked with the Whitehall-Yearling Rams, a Division I school, and the Marauders battled beyond regulation, taking the game into overtime before being beaten 69-67. Weston Baer, Coulter Clelland and Zach Bartrum all reached double-digits in both outings.
Meigs’ last four games have all been against DI or DII opponents, and the 4-6 Marauders will see another DII opponent next when they face the Athens Bulldogs on Friday.
