Mohigan Varsity and JV Find Success in Beckley

 Beckley Basketball! Nothing more needs to be stated to understand the tradition and state wide respect that the Woodrow Wilson program has. Fifteen state championships and several runner ups. This is where Morgantown wants to be. And for one evening, MHS looked like a statewide power, capable of a state championship.

 The two teams locked up in a scrimmage at Woodrow Wilson High School and both teams claimed three quarters each. The final score was MHS 93, WW 91.

 “Neither team goes into a scrimmage worrying about winning and losing,” said Coach Hoffman. “If we did we would schedule a single A school. We traveled 3 hours so we could get a top notch test and we did. We split the quarters, but both teams went to the end of their bench, so it is hard to get a gauge on who won or lost. I do know that we did a pretty good job and still have a lot of areas to clean up,” added Hoffman

 Morgantown had 4 players in double figures led by Craig Carey with fourteen points and eight assists, Jay Fletcher with thirteen points five rebounds, Zach Cooke with ten points and 9 rebounds and Anthony Schifano with ten points. Ben Hewitt added eight points and eight rebounds and Pat Lewis added eight points and seven rebounds. Lunden Ryan added 5 points and four assists and newcomer Colton Hinkle added seven points in his Mohigan debut.

 The JV team won their scrimmage easily as the fast paced Mohigans raced out to an early lead in each quarter. The final score was 68-39. Taylor Simmons led the way with 13 points and 6’7 Sam Runner added 12 points. Jeff Allen had seven rebounds.

 MHS will host George Washington at the MAC next Saturday at 2:00.
