Sports Briefs for Jan. 18, 2012: MCHS boys, girls JV basketball teams sweep weekend

The Moffat County High School boys and girls junior varsity basketball teams took different paths over the weekend, but wound up in the same spot — notching two victories on the season.

The boys JV team defeated Eagle Valley on Friday at home, 48-41.

Saturday was another close game, this time at Battle Mountain High School, but a win all the same, 56-52.

The girls JV team recorded a 62-22 win over Eagle Valley on Friday before cruising to a 45-7 win on Saturday against Battle Mountain.

Both teams play Delta High School on Jan. 20 at home, with the girls JV set to tip at 3 p.m. and the boys at 4:30 p.m.

The boys and girls freshmen squads play Jan. 21 at Eagle Valley High School for a three-game tournament.

Mandatory youth basketball meeting set for Wednesday

Moffat County Youth Basketball will host a mandatory parents and players meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Sandrock Elementary School, 201 E. Ninth St.

Any interested players and their parents must attend.

Players will register for their respective divisions. Boys and girls sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade divisions are available.

All players must sign an insurance and liability waiver at the meeting.

A $50 registration fee and $20 uniform deposit must also be paid at the meeting.

Team entry into the Yampa Valley Classic Tournament in Craig is free, but the number of players who attend any out-of-town tournaments will divide the cost of tournaments evenly.

Boys teams will begin practice Jan. 23 and girls will begin practice in February.

No player will be allowed to practice or play in games without payment of fees and completion of medical and waiver forms.

For additional information, call Amy Peck at 824-6078, or Luke Tucker at 326-6335.
