On Friday, Jan. 27, the Sanborn Central/Woonsocket Blackhawk junior high boys and girls’ basketball teams hosted the Hitchcock/Tulare Patriots in Woonsocket. It was a close matchup, but the young Lady Blackhawk girls lost with a final score 18 SCW, 21 HT.

The SCW boys played two games against the Hitchcock/Tulare Patriots. In the first game, the young Blackhawks were led by Rylan Eggleston with eight points, and SCW came away with the win over HT, 16-2.

On Monday, Jan. 30, the Blackhawks traveled to Ethan to take on the Rustlers. The girls played first and were met with a tough opponent in the Lady Rustlers. Ethan defeated SCW, 13-31.

On Friday, Feb. 3, the junior high teams were on the road again to Wolsey to play the Wolsey-Wessington Warbirds. The young Lady Warbirds proved to be too much for the Lady Blackhawks as the final score was 21 SCW, 37 WW.

Due to injuries and sickness on the Warbirds, the Blackhawk junior high boys had to play the Wolsey-Wessington freshman team.
