Select basketball teams wind up seasons

Sixth, fifth graders

Wood River fifth- and sixth-grade Select girls’ and boys’ basketball teams recently wrapped up successful winter seasons. Here is a report:

Coached by Ron Hayes, this year’s fifth-grade girls’ team represented the Wood River Valley with a winning season. They played three games and had one game cancelled due to weather. The girls finished their season 2-1, with victories against Filer Red (16-10), and Buhl (21-13).

In the Buhl game, Cassie Gorringe led the team in scoring with 7 points and 4 rebounds. Kaitana Martinez followed with 6 points, 1 rebound, and 3 assists. Taylor Gove scored 4 points and 1 rebound. Madison Gove and Tristin Bowers each landed a bucket for the team.

Taylor Hayes, Natalie Goddard, Eglantina Aguirre, Brooke Bowers, and Kylee Richmond contributed to the win with great defensive play and rebounding.

The final game of the season was played in Filer last weekend. Wood River played Filer White and lost in overtime 21-19. The girls fought back to tie it in the last seconds of regulation and sent it into overtime.

Gorringe led the way with 8 points and 6 rebounds. Martinez added 6 points, 3 steals, 3 rebounds, 3 assists while Aguirre had 6 steals.

Meanwhile, the Wolverine sixth-grade boys finished their regular season 3-1 and are headed into tournament play this weekend.

Their first season win came against Wendell 26-14. Their following victories were against Filer 36-15, and Hagerman 36-18. A game with Castleford was cancelled due to weather.

Their most recent game against Buhl ended their undefeated status in a nail biter. Wood River lost 28-27 in the last seconds of the game.

In the Buhl battle, Jimmy Hague led Wood River with 9 points, 5 rebounds and 1 assist. Keven Abbott followed with 7 points, 1 steal, and 3 rebounds. Tyler Peters scored 5 points, had 3 steals, and topped the team with 6 rebounds. Cody Gibson scored 4 points with 2 rebounds. Juan Martinez scored 2 points, had 2 steals, 1 rebound, and 1 assist.

Paul Davis dropped in a bucket for 2 points and added 1 assist. Ryan Dean played aggressive defense with 3 steals and 1 rebound. Jordan Doan provided 1 assist. Other players contributing in all aspects of play were James Elfering, Jordan Flolo, Gene Fairbrother, and Raul Salinas.
