SAN DIEGO – The Skidmore-Tynan Junior High boys basketball squads won two of three encounters with the young Vaqueros on Monday night.

In the 8A contest, the hot-shooting San Diego boys breezed to a 52-22 victory.

“We played a good team in San Diego. They did not miss many shots,” said S-T coach Jimmy Trevino.

“We came out cold and missed plenty of shots in this game.”

Rudy Olivarez led the S-T boys in scoring with seven points. Jordan Chavarria added five, including one long range jumper for a trey. Mason Crawly made four points while Angel Castillo contributed three. Ian Crittenden recorded two and Westin Keese had one marker.

The seventh-grade B team boys won a close defensive battle with the young Vaqueros. The final score was an 8-7 victory.

Brenden Boales led the Bobcats with three points. Mereck Belcher hit for two markers, as did E.J. Colmenero. Jacob Guzman added one tally.

“The team did a pretty good job tonight in earning the victory. Every single one of our players contributed on defense, said coach John Salinas.

“Belcher’s basket late in the game proved to be the winning bucket as a result of a fast break.”

Those cited for their defensive work included Samson Tovar, Gabe Guajardo, Andres Deleon, Jon Brown and Thomas Puentes.

The 7A team captured a 32-8 win over the San Diego squad. S-T blanked the Vaqueros over the first quarter, 13-0, and went on to a relatively easy victory.

“We did a great job of coming out of the gate strong. That set the tone for the rest of the evening,” said coach Salinas.

Matthew Nelson led all scorers with 12 points in the win. A.J. Arredondo followed with eight. Both players had one trey in the win. Julian Jimenez and Ben Shelton each contributed six points.

“We still have to do a better job of taking care of the ball; we tend to get careless. But, all in all, I was proud of our efforts,” Salinas said.
