periods and cruised to the 65-45 win, our fourteenth of
the season.   Eleven Mustangs dented the scoring
column as Steve McCarthy added 12 points, Jason
Cooper 9, and Kevin Smith 8.  The Mustangs will
attempt to continue their momentum Saturday night vs
Simon Kenton in Independence.

The JVs were forced to play from behind on Friday
night as the Highlands Bluebirds dictated the tempo in the
early minutes of the game as they ran out to a quick 9-3
lead.  Following a Bob Rowe 30-second time-out the
Mustangs got about the business of beating the Bluebirds
and did just that 45-28, led by Troy Cooper's 14 points.
The JVs will travel to Pendleton County High School for
a 1:30pm game with the Bracken County Polar Bears in
the 38th District JV Tournament and then proceed to
Simon Kenton High School for a 6pm regular season
engagement with the Polar Bears.  Should the Mustangs
prevail in their Saturday afternoon encouter with Bracken
County we would return on Sunday afternoon at 2pm
for the 38th District Championship ballgame.

In Friday night's play with Highlands, Troy Cooper
scored a combined 16 points JV and Varsity to close to
within six points of scoring 1,000 points, albeit scored at
the Freshmen, JV, and Varsity levels.  While this is not a
recognized category it is nonetheless quite an
accomplishment for a sophomore.  Senior Michael
Schenk accomplished the feat last season as a Junior and
MAY have been the first and only to do it.  Nathan Seiter
the only player since Nathan Seiter to accomplish the
feat.  Nate had already hit the 1,000 point mark in his
Junior year.
