Blackhawks perform well in 281 Tournament

Boys bring home runner-up and girls place fourth

Noah Dickson was awarded the Carr Chiropractic MVP Award for his performance in this year’s 281 Conference Tournament.

The 281 Conference Basketball Tournament started with a little hiccup due to the weather and a need for some rescheduling, but it did get to finish on time, so that was fortunate. The biggest issue with having to reschedule all of the first-round games is having referees also available. Fortunately, last Monday was a federal holiday, so that did free up a few schedules for referees, but rescheduling can still be difficult. 

The first round of play on Monday, Jan. 20 saw the SCW Lady Blackhawks going in seeded second and against the seventh seed, the Iroquois/Doland Chiefs. The Lady Blackhawks handled the Chiefs quite easily with a final score of 53-27 and advancing to the semi-finals. Leading the way for the Lady Blackhawks was Teya Moody with 11 points. Kaylee White had 10 points, five steals and three assists. Trista White added nine points and eight rebounds. Brooke Doering contributed eight points, five rebounds and five steals. Trinity Boschee tossed in eight points and four rebounds.

The boys’ first round game put the second-seeded Blackhawks battling with the James Valley Christian Vikings for the second time in five days. This contest resulted in another win for the Blackhawks with a final score of 55-40. SCW was led by Noah Dickson with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Malachi Bruce helped out with 12 points, and Tater Moody pitched in 10 points. Tryce Slykhuis recorded seven points, five rebounds and three assists.
