Both the Rich Hill boys and girls played their first round games in the WEMO Conference Tournament last night against the Drexel Bobcats.
The RHHS boys played at 7:30 and pulled off a fairly easy victory against the Bobcats. Their next match in the tournament will be Thursday evening at 9:00 pm against the Midway Vikings.
The Lady Tiger were seated number 6th going against the number 2 Bobcats. The game started with both teams trying to push the ball up the floor quickly. Drexel took the early lead on a 3 pointer but the Lady Tigers scored the next two baskets via jumpers by Jordann Wheatley. The first quarter ended with a Bobcat lead of14-6. Turnovers plagued the Tigers the second quarter and cold shooting allowed Drexel to hold a 30-15 lead at half time. The Lady Tigers came out the second half with more determination and played hard and outscored Drexel in the second half but never could overcome the the large lead. Leading scorers for Rich Hill was Jordann Wheatley with 12 points and Alexis Ephland with 7. The Lady Tigers play again Tuesday night at 7:30 against Archie.
