The Van Meter 9th grade boys beat Woodward-Granger 46-33 on Thursday night. A rough first half was filled with Van Meter turnovers that allowed the Hawks to stay in the game early. In the second half, the Bulldogs were able to pull away by taking care of the basketball on offense and protecting the rim on defense. Improved ball movement and screens gave Van Meter some good looks at the basket in the second half. Ike Speltz led all scorers with 15 and Michael Banks added 13 pts. Other scorers were Will Gordan (6 pts), Ashtian Watson (4 pts), Gus Rosener (4 pts), Michael Steinfeldt (2 pts), and Tyler Glade (2 pts). Next game is Friday at home against Earlham.
