PREP BOYS BASKETBALL: Warriors easily handle Eagles at home

Warriors clinch perfect NECC campaign with win over Fremont

EMMA — ust one more feat would make this another special season in the storied history of Westview High School boys basketball.

The Warriors, playing their final regular season home game Tuesday night, ignited early and cruised to a 64-46 Northeast Corner Conference win over the Fremont Eagles.

Westview, in its 47-year history, has now won or shared 22 NECC regular season championships. They won it outright this winter with a 10-0 league mark.

“We won the conference tournament and regular season championships,” said Warrior coach Rob Yoder. “If we can win the sectional (Class 2A at Westview) next week, that would be quite an accomplishment for these kids.”

While it was cold and windy outdoors, the Warriors were literally sizzling inside — especially 6-3 sophomore Chandler Aspy and 6-3 senior Nic Raber.

Aspy was 10-for-13 from the field and scored 25 points while Raber was 7-for-7 from the field and finished with 14 tallies.

“Aspy was someone we thought could get the ball inside Fremont’s zone defense and do some damage,” said Yoder. “He catches the ball with strong hands and usually does something positive with it. This is something we struggled with last year.”

Aspy, Raber and 6-4 senior Kyle Miller, who finished with 14, scored Westview’s first 44 points of the game before 5-10 junior Jordyn Bontrager joined the party late in the third quarter.

Raber, Kyle Miller and 6-3 Brett Yoder were making their final regular season home appearances as Westview athletes from all sports and their parents celebrated “Senior Night.”

The Warriors now have an 18-2 overall record and finish the regular campaign with a titanic test Friday night, visiting the Concord Minutemen at McCuen Gym.

“Concord has a lot of weapons both inside and on the perimeter,” said Coach Yoder.

“We are going over there with the idea of winning, but we will need to play extremely well. Playing a team like that will keep us focused and it’s good preparation for the sectional.”

The Warriors jumped to a 6-0 lead over Fremont in the first 3:14.

The Eagles got within 15-13 by the first stop, but were 0-for-10 from the field in the second quarter. Westview enjoyed a 16-2 scoring run to lead 31-15 at halftime.

“We had kids make plays,” said Yoder.

“Any time you can win both the conference tournament and regular season, it’s special for our program.

“We didn’t play a perfect game by any means. Our defense was not as strong in the second half and we weren’t very sharp at the free-throw line (11-for-21). We need to get some things ironed out before the sectional.”

Tyler Jenkins, a talented 6-3 senior, had 26 points and 10 rebounds for Fremont which dropped to 11-8 overall and finished 6-4 in the NECC.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?
