The Spanish Fork Junior High School’s boys basketball team won the ninth-grade Nebo School District Championship game against Payson Junior High School in triple over-time Thursday night in the Spanish Fork High School gym, 69 to 61. Coach Cory Morgan was so proud of his team saying it was a complete team effort. With Parker Bowman and Chad Peterson fouling out, Tanner Nielson came off the bench in the 3rd overtime to hit two 3-pointers and 2 free-throws to give the Lobos their howling victory!
The Lobos won every game during the tournament. Chad Peterson says that the Spanish Fork Junior High School fans are the best in the district and are simply LOUD and PROUD! The fans filled the high school gym as if it were an important Dons game!
The outstanding team members are Tim Fleming, James Perry, Lance Argyle, Hayden Eyre, Tanner Nielson, Dallin Shepherd, Chad Peterson, Jared Nelson, Ty Bennett, Parker Bowman, Devin Minson, and Garrett Parry. Their amazing managers are Brandon Bates and Daniel Raliegh. The team is coached by our inspiring teachers Jason Beardall and Cory Morgan.
Congratulations to all of these fantastic young men and their coaches!
