UHS BASKETBALL SUB-STATE RESULTS

Adelay Martin. Submitted photo.

The Uniontown basketball season came to an end on Friday and Saturday for the girls’ and boys’ teams. We are incredibly proud of how hard every player has worked this season, and look forward to the 2021-22 season next winter.

The boys’ Varsity team played Southeast on Thursday for the second Sub-State round. They won 44-20. Clay Sutterby led that game with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Jake Harvey had 12 points and 3 steals; Dawson Dreisbach had 9 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 assists. Drew Perry also had 3 assists.

The Lady Eagles’ season ended on Friday in their game against Humboldt. The score was 41-50. Karleigh Schoenberger had 15 points and 3 steals. Danielle Howard scored 13 points and had 4 assists and 3 steals. Sammie Hampton had 6 rebounds and 2 steals. Rylee Coulter and Addisyn Hall had 3 rebounds, and Coulter had 2 steals.

“It was a tough loss to end a successful season,” Coach Miller said. “After losing our second game of the season in overtime to Erie, we went on a fourteen-game win streak. Our efforts earned us 1st place in the Kenny Hold Memorial Tournament, a shared Three Rivers League title, and the #1 seat in our Sub-State Tournament. We set out to reach some goals this year and we were able to mark a few off the list. We will keep trying, keep improving, and never give up. If we don’t ever reach all of our goals, we will always have the memories of the wonderful people God has introduced to us along the way. Thank you Rhian Gorman, Aiden Holt, Karleigh Schoenberger, and Sammie Hampton for your four years of commitment to our team. We are all better people for having known you four amazing young women.”

The boys’ season ended after losing to Erie on Saturday, 38-42. Luke Perry led with 11 points this game. Jake Harvey, Cade Goodridge, and Clay Sutterby each scored 7 points. Harvey also had 5 boards and 3 steals, while Goodridge had 5 rebounds and Sutterby had 6. Drew Perry had 3 assists.

“I’m extremely proud of our team,” said Coach Hays. “We had the goal since the season began to make the Sub-State championship game. We accomplished that goal. We were really close to making the state tournament. We competed our tails off against Erie, but just came up a little short. I’m thankful for our seniors. They are great kids that will be missed dearly.”

Adelay Martin. Submitted photo.

Uniontown hosted the first round of our 2-A Sub-State games on Monday and Tuesday this week. Both teams were victorious and will move on to the next round, hosted at Humboldt on Thursday and Friday.

The Lady Eagles once again defeated the Southeast Lancers with a score of 58-29. Karleigh Schoenberger scored 23 points and had 2 assists and 2 steals. Danielle Howard had 16 points, 4 assists, and 7 steals. Sammie Hampton had 5 rebounds and Gwenyth Fry had 3.

“The girls played hard and took care of business tonight. We will face Humboldt in the second round on Friday. We’ve got what it takes, but it will take all we’ve got,” said Coach Miller.

Point guard Danielle Howard said, “It was a good win for our last home game. We’re looking forward to another game against Humboldt.”

The boys played Jayhawk and won 50-44. Jake Harvey had 24 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 steals. Luke Perry scored 10 points and had 4 assists. Clay Sutterby also scored 10 points and had 12 rebounds. Dawson Dreisbach had 5 rebounds.

“We’ve reached the point in the season where it’s win or go home,” Coach Hays said. “The boys played really well in spurts tonight against Jayhawk Linn. We turned the ball over too much and didn’t rebound very well, however. Those are both things we will need to get fixed heading into our matchup with Southeast on Thursday.”

UHS BASKETBALL RESULTS vs. CHERRYVALE 2/22/2021

The Uniontown Eagles played some tough games on Monday against Cherryvale. The Chargers defeated both Varsity teams. The boys also played a game in Oswego last Friday, which they won.

Laney Covey, Camryn Davis, and Addisyn Hall each had 3 rebounds. Hall and Sammie Hampton also each had 2 steals. The JV team lost 31-36, Hall and Davis scoring 10 and 9 points, respectively. The two also led in rebounds, 6 and 4. Brooklyn Dreisbach and Davis each had 4 steals.

Coach Miller says, “The Varsity and Junior Varsity girls suffered a couple of tough losses tonight. The girls battled hard, but unfortunately fell short. We will put this game behind us and focus on taking on Girard for our final regular-season game.”

The boys lost to Cherryvale 51-68. Jake Harvey scored 22 points and had 6 rebounds and 4 steals. Luke Perry scored 10 points. Drew Perry had 3 assists, Dawson Dreisbach had 6 boards, and Clay Sutterby had 10 rebounds and 3 blocks.

“It was a tough night for our basketball team,” Coach Hays admits. “Cherryvale came out on fire from deep. I liked how we continued to fight and play hard all four quarters. It will be nice to get back to practice tomorrow and work on getting better. Things don’t get easier with Girard coming to town Thursday.”

Their Varsity team beat Oswego 44-25 on Friday. Jake Harvey scored 21 points and had 5 rebounds and 3 steals. Dawson Dreisbach scored 11 points, and had 5 rebounds and 3 steals as well. Luke Perry also had 5 rebounds, while Drew Perry had 3 assists. Clay Sutterby had 10 rebounds and 3 blocks.

“Our game against Oswego was a last second schedule change, as both Pleasanton and St. Paul were both unable to play us. I’m glad we were able to squeeze this game in and give our boys another chance to compete. Oswego is a team on the rise and played extremely hard. We were fortunate to pull away in the second half,” Coach Hays says.

We can take a lot from this game. We need to handle adversity better and not make it harder on ourselves to get back in the game. We also need to do a better job of closing out games.”

When you win the battle in the paint, more often than not you will come out on top. I’m proud of the boys and how we are progressing.”

Tuesday was a successful night for the Eagles. Both Lady Eagles teams won their games, as did the Varsity boys. The JV boys were defeated by the Vikings.

The Varsity girls defeated the Central Heights Vikings 43-27. Danielle Howard scored 19 points and had 5 steals. Karleigh Schoenberger had 7 points and 6 rebounds. Gwenyth Fry and Sammie Hampton had 4 rebounds, and Fry also had 2 assists.

“We earned a couple of good wins on the road tonight,” says Coach Miller. “The Varsity girls faced a little adversity in the second quarter, but overcame it with a solid second half performance. Our JV girls played well in their 2-quarter competition. There are a few in the group that are ready to compete for some Varsity minutes. We will be on the road again this Friday where we will take on the Oswego Indians.”

“We didn’t play with great energy in the first half,” comments Coach Hays. We got in some foul trouble early and we never really got in a rhythm that first half. I thought, in the second half, we played with much better energy. We applied some full court pressure and that helped change the momentum. Central Heights is a good team and we were fortunate to come out on top.”

I loved seeing everyone get involved against Chetopa.”
