"We did a good job on the defensive end," WVHS Head Basketball Coach John Peterson told the Herald Saturday morning. "We held ’em to 9 points in the first half. We were very workmanlike on offense. It wasn’t pretty, but we were efficient. I was pleased with our defensive pressure. We’re doing OK. We need a lot of work.
"Stephen (Camenzind) had a nice game with 21 points and 11 rebounds, and Kyler Oblad (10 pts) played a good game," Peterson noted. Anthony (Sagen) had 7 assists and Hunter Grey came off the bench and made 6 steals."
