Written by Holyoke Enterprise   
    Losing their first two games on the road to Wray on Tuesday, Dec. 2 and to Brush on Thursday, Dec. 4, Holyoke’s jayvee boys’ basketball team used the Holyoke home court as the place to stage their comeback when they beat Idalia Saturday, Dec. 6.
    The losses to Wray, 45-55, and Brush, 31-39, in addition to the win against Idalia, 50-34, gives the Dragon JV team a record of 1-2 for the season so far.
Holyoke 45, Wray 55
    Wray came out strong against Holyoke right from the start, quickly taking the lead and maintaining it throughout the game.
    HHS made a great attempt to catch up in the third quarter, outscoring Wray by 11 points. But by that time, the Wray team’s advantage was too great to overcome. It did bring their totals much closer together, however, with a final score of 45-55.
    Reid Baumgartner led in scoring for the Dragons with 19 points. Not far behind him was Brian DeBoer with 16. Others scoring for HHS JV included Preston King with six points, Willie Greenman three and Brent Vasa with a free throw.

    In a low-scoring game for the Dragons against Brush, the team could only manage to put up 11 points on the scoreboard in the entire first half. Meanwhile, Brush experienced a surge of momentum in the second quarter, earning a comfortable lead on Holyoke.
    After another tough quarter in the second half, during which HHS made only one basket, the team finally began to gain on Brush in the fourth, but the time clock ran out too quickly for them to overtake the lead. The Dragons lost by eight.
    Topping the stats list was DeBoer with eight points, followed by Greenman with seven and Baumgartner, six. Others contributing to the scoreboard were King with four and Cody Fricke and Brent Vasa had two each.
