On Monday, January 10th, the Yellow Jackets hosted the Red Hill Salukis in non-conference action. In the B-game, after one quarter of play, the Salukis led 8-4. From there, the next two quarters were tough for the Yellow Jackets, as they trailed 16-4 at halftime and 26-4 after three quarters. In the fourth quarter, the Yellow Jackets were able to raise their score, but lost the game to the Salukis 32-8. Scoring for the Yellow Jackets was Tim Harness with all 8 points. The B-team is now 1-10 on the season. In the A-game, on 8th grade night, what a dandy of a ballgame the large crowd got to see. After one quarter of play, the Yellow Jackets led 10-8. At halftime, the Yellow Jackets extended their lead to 16-12 with 14 minutes of basketball left to play. The third quarter was just as good for the Yellow Jackets, as they continued to extend the lead to 26-21. In the fourth quarter, it did get to a one point game with less than two minutes to go, but the Yellow Jackets pulled it out behind crucial free throw shooting of Kasen Dulgar (3-4 in the quarter). The Yellow Jackets won the game 35-32. Scoring for the Yellow Jackets were: Brady Porter with 9 points, Elliott Acree with 8 points, Rhett Andrews with 7 points, Brendan Bowser with 6 points, Kasen Dulgar with 3 points, and Will Freeland with 2 points. The Yellow Jackets were 6-10 from the free throw line on the night, which is a whole lot better. It wasn't the greatest of offensive nights, but the defense by the Yellow Jackets was fantastic. Tremendous difference in this ballclub between last week in the WEAA tournament and tonight in their final home game. The A-team is now 7-7 on the season. Next up: Yellow Jackets travel to Lincoln Trail College to play New Hebron on Thursday, January 13th. The C-game will begin at 5:15 pm. At the game tonight, we also had a fundraiser for the family of Wayne County Sheriff Deputy Sean Riley. We sold 91 BBQ sandwiches. Thank you to Phillip and Michelle Potts for making and donating the BBQ. We also received numerous donations to add to the total. Thank you to everyone who gave to this very worthy cause, as Yellow Jackets Basketball will be making a donation of $950 to help this family of a local hero. Thank you to our Yellow Jackets fan base. And also a big thank you to those from Red Hill in attendance. We both played a great game tonight, but in the end, all of us made a contribution to help the family of a fallen Police Officer. Thank you!

On Wednesday, January 5th, Yellow Jackets basketball traveled to New Hope for the quarterfinal round of the WEAA Conference tournament.  The Yellow Jackets came out cold as ice and trailed 9-3 after the first quarter.  A better second quarter got the Yellow Jackets within three at halftime, 17-14.  The third quarter was just as good for the Yellow Jackets, as we took the lead 24-23 going into the final seven minutes.  The fourth quarter started off with the Yellow Jackets finally gaining a 3 point lead with under two minutes to go in the game.  But, missed free throws and turnovers gave New Hope life and they capitalized.  The final score on the board showed New Hope winning the game 31-29.  Scoring for the Yellow Jackets were:  Elliott Acree with 11 points, Rhett Andrews with 8 points, Brendan Bowser with 5 points, Kasen Dulgar with 2 points, Will Freeland with 2 points, and Brady Porter with 1 point.  It was a terrible shooting night for the Yellow Jackets.  We were 4-13 from the free throw line, including 1 of 6 in the fourth quarter.  Unofficially, the Yellow Jackets shot 11-36 from the field, which is barely 30%.  Layups, free throws and defense win you ballgames, and we struggled in these areas throughout the first game back from break.  Yet, the boys fought hard throughout the game to keep themselves in it and have a chance to move on in the tournament.  We just came up short. Next up:  Monday, January 10th at home against Red Hill.  B-game will begin at 6 pm.  It is 8th grade night for the boys basketball team and cheerleaders.  We will also have BBQ sandwiches available on this night in the concession stand, for which the money from these sandwiches will be donated to the family of Wayne County Deputy Sheriff Sean Riley.  This is our final home game of the season.

On Thursday, December 16, Yellow Jackets basketball hosted New Hope in WEAA Conference play.  In the C-game, New Hope won the ballgame 33-10.  Scoring for the Yellow Jackets were:  Ryland Houchin with 8 points and TJ Singh with 2 points.  The C-team is now 4-4 on the season. In the B-game, New Hope won the game with a strong second half, by the final score of 36-22.  Scoring for the Yellow Jackets were:  Tim Harness with 17 points, Jaxon Morris with 3 points, and Landon Wilford with 2 points.  The B-team is now 1-9 on the season.   In the A-game, the Yellow Jackets trailed after one quarter of play, 11-10.  In the second quarter, things kept working for the Yellow Jackets, but we were all tied up at halftime 22-22.  The third quarter is where the boys set the tone, as the Yellow Jackets stormed out of the locker room to a 37-30 lead with seven minutes remaining.  In the fourth quarter, the Yellow Jackets had extended their lead to double digits but did not shoot free throws very well in the quarter to end up winning 51-42.  Scoring for the Yellow Jackets were:  Brady Porter with 11 points, Elliott Acree with 10 points, Brendan Bowser with 10 points, Rhett Andrews with 10 points, Kasen Dulgar with 8 points, and Will Freeland with 2 points.  Unbelievable balance on the offensive end tonight for the Yellow Jackets.  We really need to work on our free throws (8-20 in the game).  But what a solid game from start to finish for the Yellow Jackets.  Hopefully our fans have noticed how well the team has played the last two games, as they have become more consistent as a unit.  The Yellow Jackets are now 6-6 on the season and wrap up the WEAA Conference slate 4-4. Next up:  at New Hope (4-seed) in the WEAA Conference tournament.  The game will be Wednesday, January 5th, at 6 pm.  The Yellow Jackets are the 5-seed in the tournament.

On Tuesday, December 14th, Yellow Jackets basketball hosted Jasper in non-conference action.  In the C-game, the Yellow Jackets fell in defeat by the final score of 48-2.  Scoring for the Yellow Jackets was Jaxon Morris.  The C-team is now 4-3 on the season. In the B-game, Jasper won 38-8.  Scoring for the Yellow Jackets were:  Ryland Houchin with 5 points, Tim Harness with 2 points, and Jaxon Morris with 1 point.  The B-team is now 1-8 on the season. In the A-game, the Yellow Jackets potentially played their best game of the season.  Still room for improvement on both ends of the court, but we are getting better.  Jasper led 9-0 before the Yellow Jackets woke up and stormed back in the first quarter to only trail 13-11.  The Yellow Jackets outscored Jasper in the second quarter, but still trailed by one at halftime, 24-23.  The third quarter was another good one for the Yellow Jackets, as we actually led 37-36 with seven minutes to play.  A few turnovers and a few missed shots in the fourth quarter made it rough on the Yellow Jackets, as we fell in defeat 45-40.  The players gave themselves chances to win the game, but just came up short on this night.  But, they are improving.  Scoring for the Yellow Jackets were:  Elliott Acree with 20 points, Brady Porter with 10 points, Brendan Bowser with 5 points, Kasen Dulgar with 4 points, and Cameron Kolb with 1 point.  The A-team is now 5-6 on the season and 3-4 in the WEAA Conference.   Next up:  Thursday, December 16th at home against New Hope for the final WEAA Conference game of the season.  C-game begins at 5:15 pm.

On Thursday, December 9th, Yellow Jackets Basketball traveled to Cisne for WEAA Conference action.  In the B-game, Cisne defeated the Yellow Jackets by the final score of 41-19.  Scoring for the Yellow Jackets were:  Tim Harness with 12 points, Ryland Houchin with 5 points, and TJ Singh with 2 points.  The B-team is now 1-7 on the season. In the A-game, the first 9 minutes of basketball was the best I have seen this team ever play.  In fact, the Yellow Jackets led after one quarter of play 12-9 over one of the best teams, if not the best team for Class S, in this area.  But the wheels fell off in the second quarter and we were not able to get replacements quick enough.  By halftime, Cisne led 27-17.  The third quarter wasn't any better for the Yellow Jackets, as Cisne led 49-23 going into the final frame.  The final score showed Cisne defeating the Yellow Jackets 56-25.  Scoring for the Yellow Jackets were:  Elliott Acree with 8 points, Rhett Andrews with 6 points, Will Freeland with 4 points, Brendan Bowser with 3 points, Kasen Dulgar with 2 points, and Brady Porter with 2 points.  The A-team is now 5-5 on the season and 3-4 in the WEAA Conference. Next up:  non-conference home game vs. Jasper on Tuesday, December 14th.  The C-game will begin at 5:15 pm.

On Tuesday, December 21st, Allendale CCSD 17 will return to having its Annual Christmas Program at 12:15 pm. The program will feature seasonal songs sung by Kindergarten through 4th Grade classes, as well as a few junior high band students participating. We are also hopeful to make contact with Santa Claus to see if he will make an appearance at our program. We will allow parents and grandparents to attend the program, as well as provide a live link to the program on the school website (same page as basketball games are broadcast). For those who have attended in the past, the set up will be a little different this year. We will have seating for parents and grandparents in the bleachers on both sides of the gym available, in order to provide adequate space for families to spread out and enjoy. The program will end by 1:15 pm and parents may sign their child out to go home at that time. Otherwise, dismissal will be at 1:15 pm for all students and buses will run at that time.
