The boys’ freshmen basketball team traveled to New Castle in their first of three games for this week. The Spartans found themselves trailing most of the game until a made 3 point basket by Brayden Jones at the start of the fourth quarter which gave the Spartans their first lead of the game. The Spartans never looked back, as they tightened up their defense and made free throws down the stretch to put away the New Castle Trojans on the road, 38-31. Eight of the ten players that played dove into the scoring column, including Quinten Leisure who led the team with 13 points, Rudy Branstetter with 12, Braylind Colassaco with 3, Brayden Jones with 3, Dustin McCarrell, Evan Granger, Gage Brown, all added 2 points, and Gavin Lynch chipped in 1 point. With the win, the team improved their record to (4-1) and will next be in action Thursday at Cambridge City.
