The freshman boys’ basketball team is perfect! The Warriors ended their season 12-0 with a win over the Mt. Michael Knights Thursday night, Feb. 11.
After a slow first half, the Warriors held on to a 13-11 lead at halftime, but just like they have all year, came out firing the second half. The Warriors outscored the Knights 37-9 in a dominating second half, racking up 18 steals and forcing 25 turnovers for the game.
Brook Stuart had the hot hand, shooting 4 of 6 from behind the arc, finishing with 18 points. Jon Abbott added 11 points while Mitch Shukis tallied 8 steals. Dylan Jaskulski finished with 7 rebounds for the night.
“It’s been a team effort all year, and the kids know it. It hasn’t been just two or three guys each night, it’s been all eight,” Coach Marc Kaminski commented about the season. “This team should be very proud of their achievements this year, but they also know they still have bigger and better things ahead of them if they continue to work hard.”

WHS Freshmen Basketball Boys Off to a Good Start
Warriors Defeat Mustangs 47-42

Raymond Central 42
The freshman boys basketball team opened the 2009-2010 season with a 47-42 victory over the Raymond Central Mustangs Monday night, December 7.
The Warriors jumped out to a fast start with a 13-7 lead after one quarter. The Mustangs battled back in the second quarter to take a 22-21 lead at the half. The Warriors came out in the third quarter with their foot on the pedal, outscoring Raymond Central 16-8, and they never looked back, despite a Mustang surge in the fourth.
The Warriors forced the Mustangs to 27 turnovers, which Coach Marc Kaminski thought was the key to the game.
“We are going to have to cause a lot of turnovers and pressure teams hard each game for us to be successful and win games. And I think that was the difference tonight,” said Kaminski. “I think we also need to play a little more consistent throughout the game. We looked great one quarter, and not so great in other quarters or parts of quarters, but it was a pretty typical first game.”
The Wahoo Warriors were lead in scoring by Jon Abbott with 13 points. Brook Stuart added 9 and Mitch Shukis 8. Preston Raymond chipped in 6 steals. The freshmen boys will be back in action on Monday night at Wahoo High School against Fremont. The girls will tip off at 6 p.m. with the boys to follow.
