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.”
