Blackhawks basketball team has a week of tough opponents

Noah Dickson broke the SCW boys’ basketball single game rebounding record during the game against Ethan with 18 rebounds last Monday night. The record was held by Davion Brooks back in 2014 with 15 rebounds.

The week of basketball for the SCW Blackhawks started on Monday, Jan. 29 when they traveled to Ethan for a doubleheader with the Rustlers. The Blackhawks came up with a big win that night with a 52-42 victory. Trey Weber led the scoring with 14 points, and Trent Kingsbury recorded a double-double on the night with 11 points and 11 assists.

The Rustlers had Noah Dickson’s number for scoring, but they couldn’t contain him under the hoop as he came down with 18 of SCW’s 38 rebounds, breaking a school record for rebounds in a single game.

Next up was Corsica-Stickney, one of the state’s top Class B schools in boys’ basketball at the moment. The Sanborn Central/Woonsocket Blackhawks proved they are contenders as one of the top teams, also, as they played their hearts out in Forestburg on Thursday night. Unfortunately, after a double overtime, the Blackhawks came up short and lost a rough battle with a final score of 56-59. Noah Dickson led all scorers in the game with 25 points.

The final game of the week was Saturday, Feb. 3 against the Wolsey-Wessington Warbirds. This was a rematch of the two teams in the championship game for the 281 Conference. Although the Blackhawks won that first matchup with the Warbirds, Saturday night ended differently for them. They fought a hard battle with the score tied at 24 at the half-time mark, but the Warbirds ended with the win and a final score of 45-46. Noah Dickson scored a game high of 20 points and Jared Goldammer helped out with eight points.

The Blackhawks go into this week with a record of 11-4, and they see their next action at home in Woonsocket against the Iroquois Chiefs on Tuesday, Feb. 6.
