WAITSBURG -- It's been a fun year for the Waitsburg-Prescott boys.
First, a B state soccer title in boys soccer.
Then, a 2B state championship in football.
Now the boys basketball team wants to share in some of the spotlight. The Cardinals (9-7, 6-2 Southeast 2B) picked up their biggest win of the season over second-ranked Dayton (14-1, 6-1), handing the Bulldogs their first loss of the year with a 51-44 home victory.
Never miss a local story.
"It helps that we see them a lot. We both know each other," said W-P coach T.J. Scott. "They blow a lot of teams out, but when they play us it's a dogfight."
Zach Bartlow and Dustin Wooderchak combined for 19 points, but Scott was most impressed with his young post Chance Leroue, who had seven points, five rebounds and two steals in just two quarters of play.
"Bartlow is our horse, and Wooderchak is right behind him, but (Leroue) is an absolute monster," Scott said of the 6-foot-1, 175-pound frosh. "He's a two-way starter in football, and he does not look like a freshman."
