Our Freshman Mustangs closed out their regular season on Wednesday night in the SyDome, defeating the Holy Cross Indians 59-40 behind the double-figure scoring efforts of Joe Schroeder, who led the team with 13 points, and Ben Volmer who contributed 10. In total 9 Mustangs scored in this game. Dom Hadden and Parker Mulberry both scored 8 points apiece, with Mulberry knocking down a pair of 3-pointers. In total our guys hit six 3s on the night. Keegan Gulley, Luke Alwell, Andrew Lusby, and Emmerson Schwegmann accounted for the other four.
We will play in the Northern Kentucky “Jack Kaelin Memorial” Freshman Tournament starting this Saturday at 11:15am when we take on Boone County at Covington Catholic High School. .
Joe Schroeder has grown into a strong, reliable inside force for the freshman team. He and Ben Volmer combined for 23 of our 59 points versus Holy Cross. For Volmer this was his third consecutive double-figures scoring outing, and his fourth in the last five games.
We started this season with losses to Covington Catholic and Pendleton County before defeating Bracken County. Our record would fall to 1-5 prior to defeating Harrison County on December 22nd in Cynthiana.. Our 64-47 win over Franklin County at Mason County on New Year’s Eve proved to be a turnaround game, after which we would go 6-3 with wins over big schools Boone County and Dixie Heights, along with a rivalry win over NCC, conference wins over St. Henry, Holy Cross and NCC, and a district win over the Scott Eagles.
Domyniq Hadden is perhaps our most improved Freshman Mustang who has developed into a big, strong guard, and has developed confidence in his ability to handle the ball, and score.
