MLBO had defeated the chargers earlier in the sea- son with a score of 60-46. The Chargers came out ready to play and it showed on the court. WWG had a strong 1st quarter, leading at the end, 15-7. MLBO came alive in the 2nd quarter, but the Chargers were still able to hang on to the lead after the half, 27-26. In the 2nd half, the Chargers had many girls come alive as they had scoring from 6 players. Their defense made it tough for MLBO to gain the lead and when the final buzzer rang, the Chargers were on top with a score of 55-49. "We had 4 quarters of consistency on both offense and defense and that's something we need to do to win games. We really played great team ball tonight."

The Falcons had 7 three point shots fall throughout the game and that made it hard for the Chargers to defend. The Chargers were down by 15 at halftime, but came out in the 3rd quarter and cut the Falcon lead to 5. The Falcons then came out in a full court defense and the Chargers had a tough time getting into their offense. The final score was Falcons 63, Chargers 45. "This was a very fast paced and physical game. The girls did a great job coming back in the 3rd quarter, but we couldn't keep up with their outside shooters." Jamie Munson led the Chargers with 18 points. Nicole Byers and Jenny Heinrich both pulled down 7 rebounds. WWG shot 37% from the field and 60% from the line. The Chargers travel to Round Lake to take on SVRLB on ThursdaL February 12. Charger girls B-squad Two Charger girls B- squaders.

"'the girls did a much better job of finding the open person, then converting," said Coach Hannah. Jonna Maas and Jenna Jarmer each had three assists. Jen 0 0 2 0 4 Comnick 0 0 2 0 4 Typical of the roller coaster season offensively, the girls couldn't find the bottom of the bucket on Friday in Jeffers, falling to the Falcons 45-18. "The shots that fell on Tuesday against MLBO did- n't fall on Friday in Jeffers," said Coach Hannan. "On the positive side though, we're working hard and getting good looks."

The Chargers next game will be a four-team tourna- ment that will be played in Westbrook on Saturday, February 14. WWG boys drop two In a week shortened by snow, the WWG boys basket- ball team was able to get in two of three road games. Tuesday, February 3, they traveled to Slayton to face the Rebels in a Red Rock Conference battle. It was all Rebels on this night, as the Chargers struggled early and could not swing the momentum against a much improved MCC team. Freshman Jake Wahl recorded his second consecu- tive double double with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Sophomore big man, Jake Severson, added 14 points and 6 rebounds. The final was MCC 97 and WWG 52. Thursday; February 5, the Chargers traveled to Lake Benton for a nonconfer- ence game. WWG led 25-18 at half, but could not man- age the game offensively in the second half, as the Bobcats won the game 54-45. It was a much better defensive game for WWG, but limited shots and turnovers cost them the game. Josh Byers led with 13 points and Jake Wahl 10. This week the boys play a make-up game on Thursday at SSC. Then home Friday vs. SWC. 8th grade boys take on top-seeded MLBO The Charger boys trav- eled to Mt. Lake January 29, 2004, to take on the top- seeded MLBO. It was a tight game throughout, as the Chargers held their own against a very tough Wolverine team. The Chargers did fall behind quickly, as MLBO hit a 3- pointer and had a couple fast-break baskets to gain a 9-0 lead. WWG fought back to keep MLBO within striking distance, but could not pull it off, losing 32-42. Scoring for WWG were: Joe Doubler 15; Ben Pacholl 7, Jace Jarmer 6, Andy Alcorn and Austin Quade 2. Will Spaeth, RJ Pfarr, and Justin Knakmuhs played key roles without scoring. 7th grade boys defeat MLBO Unlike the week before, the Chargers only had two games this week. On Monday, the Chargers were to play host to Windom. However, the constant enemy of the boys basketball squad, the weather, again decided that the game would not be played. That left only Thursday; January 29, 2004, for the 7th grade team to release its energy. The team traveled to Mt. Lake to play MLBO, and the boys truly unleashed their frustrations on the oppo- nent. Scoring 14 points in the first 5 minutes, the boys went on to a 47 - 11 victory. The team was led offensively by Jace Jarmer with 13. Josh Merrick with 7, and Theo Johnson and Justin Knakmuhs with 6 each. However, Derek Eichner, Kyle Baumann, Marcus Madson, Dan McClellan, and Weston Dibble all scored multiple points. The story, however, was again, the Chargers' smoth- ering defense. The boys allowed only 3 points the entire second half. and gath- ered up 14 steals to only 6 turnovers. Leading the way was Michael Jarmer and Kyle Baumann with 3 each and Colton Knudson and Derek Eichner with 2 as well. A rebounding advantage Of 24 to7 also allowed the Chargers to put the game out of reach. Eric Olsem and Nathan Wallman joined the team in cleaning the glass. While no player, had more than 4 rebounds, every player had at least one! It was truly a team game and a nice way to go into a 2 week break. 8th 9rade girls pick up hrst tourney w,n By Coach Peterson The 8th grade girls bas- ketball team traveled to Butterfield on February 3, 2004, to host MLBO in their first conference game.
