Triangle Lake Tops Eagles 57-19,
C.S. Lewis Too, 54-32
The McKenzie Eagle Varsity Boys Basketball team took a couple of road trips last week. The first, on Tuesday, January 31, found the Eagles traveling to Triangle Lake to meet the Lakers. Triangle Lake currently resides in second place in the latest Mt. West League standings, two games behind leader Mohawk.
McKenzie rolled into Lakerville still seeking a season-first victory, but the Lakers, good hosts as they always are, were reluctant to accommodate their visitor's wishes. Bottom stat line, Triangle Lake 57, McKenzie 19.
McKenzie freshman Allen Acevedo finished with 9 points to lead his young team and he added an assist and 3 steals to his personal stat line. Fellow frosh Will Meister scored 5 points, had 3 rebounds and a steal, and junior Griffin Withalm wrapped up his game with 3 points and 2 rebounds. Junior Salomon Acevedo had 1 point and 3 rebounds and fellow junior Thomas Hayes added another point and 5 boards. Sophomore Jovial Jordan and senior Trent Peek each grabbed 1 rebound.
Following the trip out to Triangle Lake earlier in the week, the Eagles again packed up the team bus on Friday, February 3, this time hitting the road North via I-5 to Newberg, where they tangled with the Watchmen of C.S. Lewis Academy. Still seeking that elusive first victory, the Eagles would find themselves yet searching following a 54-32 loss on the night.
In that game, Meister led his teammates with 14 points, 7 rebounds, and a steal. Allen Acevedo finished with 8 points, 1 rebound, 3 assists, and 4 steals. Peek added 6 points, 7 boards, and a steal, Hayes scored 3 points, 7 rebounds, and an assist, and Salomon Acevedo finished with 1 point, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, and 3 steals. Jordan grabbed 1 rebound and had a couple of steals.
The McKenzie Boys Basketball team has two games remaining in its 2022-23 Mt. West League regular season.
Watchmen Drop Eagle Girls, 34-10
McKenzie's Varsity Girl's Basketball team lost a non-league game to C.S. Lewis Academy up near Portland at the Watchmen's campus in Newberg. The Watchmen team is a member of the Casco League and currently sits in third place behind OSAA fifth-ranked St. Paul and second-place Crosshill Christian.
McKenzie has two games remaining on the 2022-23 regular season and at least one MWL post-season game scheduled at Mapleton. The McKenzie Girls Basketball team does not furnish official game stats.
