The Badger boys kicked off their season with a win and a loss this past weekend at the annual Cascade Tip-Off Tournament.

Last Friday, after weeks of preparing for these games, the team stepped onto the court with hunger in their eyes. The Badgers first contest was against the Helena Christian Rams and ended in a 67-49 triumph.

Starting off the first eight minutes, the boys came out with a strong intensity that left them trailing by four at the end of the quarter. Carrying the same energy into the second quarter the opposing team was only able to score four points, which left the Badgers in the lead at halftime with a score of 31-19. The boys continued to hold the lead for the rest of the game and finished their first tournament win with success. Senior Calder Ludvigson scored a game-high total of 18 points and was followed by Dillon Shipp with 16, Ryan Bogden with 15, Kolton Lynn with 12 and lastly Ryder Jackson with 4.

Senior Ryder Jackson stated, “It was a good win. It helped us look at what’s to come this season and what we’re capable of.”

On Saturday, the boys faced the Foothill Christian Falcons in a game that unfortunately ended with a 61-41 loss. The Badgers came out tough in the first half, competing with the Falcons fast offense but trailed 20-24 at the end of the second quarter. After the halftime, the boys struggled to make shots which left them unable to keep up and ended the game in a loss. Shipp led the boys in scoring with a total of 15 points, Lynn added another nine, and Ludvigson added seven. Bogden also contributed to the scoreboard with six points, and Trent Cox chipped in with four.

After the game, Bogden stated, “With a new starting five it’s difficult, but there’s a lot to learn as the season goes on.”

Head coach Roger Hatler also had something to say about last weekend’s games.

“Overall, I’m happy with all the effort the boys put forth,” said Hatler.  “Obviously, Friday night was better than Saturday, but Foothills exposed things that we need to work on. These kids are working hard and are getting better.  I’m very excited for the future.”

The boys travel to Augusta on Friday and head to Sunburst on Saturday.  Come out and support them if you can! Good luck, Badgers!
