Keenburg squads top Range3:30 am | January 15, 2013
On eighth-grade appreciation night at Keenburg Elementary, the Tigers doubled their fun with a boy/girl basketball sweep of Range Monday evening.
The girls, while playing shorthanded, still were able to post a 48-26 victory while the boys slugged their way through a hard-fought 26-21 win.
The Tigers used a massive rebounding edge to hold off a pesky bunch of Rebels, but had trouble finding the shooting touch themselves missing on several layups and inside putbacks.
Head coach Amy Townsend’s girls’ squad saw eight of her 10 players who are eighth graders honored post game and they are Amber Burke, Linda Espino, Taylor Sams, Shaylin Depew, Malia Palmer, Tyler Messer, Kassie Burchett and Elizabeth Carter.
