Trego’s basketball teams competed in the MCL tournament the week of January 14. The boys finished in sixth place with a 1-2 record.

On Monday, January 14, the Eagles went up against the Plainville Cardinals. They fought hard through the first quarter but only snatched up four points as compared to Plainville’s 16. In the second quarter, however, the Eagles matched the Cardinal’s 13 points, ending the first half at Plainville’s lead of 29-17. When they came back out, Trego was ready to fight. They scored 13 points and held Plainville to seven. Nevertheless, the last quarter proved fatal; the Eagles only scored six to the Cardinal’s 15, therefore ending the game with an Eagle loss of 51-36.

The Eagles traveled to Stockton on Thursday, January 17 to face Norton.  The game was a tight race but the Eagles came out on top, 49-43.  The Eagles then came back home and played Ellis on January 19.  The Eagles fell to the Railers, 31-51.
