On Tuesday, December 11, the Eagles face up against Oakley at home. Having just been beaten by the Plainsmen on Saturday, Trego stepped on the court with a taste for revenge.

In the first quarter, the Eagles sprinted away from Oakley. Playing well, TCHS put up 13 points to Oakley’s four. Losing momentum in the second quarter, the boys were only able to add two while Oakley yielded seven. This left the halftime score at 15-11.

The Eagles came back strong in the third quarter. They made 11 more points, but Oakley held on by scoring nine. With one quarter left, the score read 26-20.Trego fought hard in the fourth quarter, but only making 12 points to Oakley’s 18 tied the game at 38-38. Thus, the game went into overtime.

During overtime, both teams gave great effort. However, by the time the game had ended, Trego walked off the court with a winning score of 44-42 and smiles on their faces.

Having made 11 points in the game, Keagan Shubert earned the title of the top scorer for Trego and weighed in on the victory.

“It felt good to come back after Saturday and defeat Oakley—sometimes revenge is necessary.”

The TCHS boys’ basketball snatched fourth place at the Purple and Gold Tournament the week of December 3.

On Tuesday, December 4, the boys went up against Stockton. Daunted by their falling to the Tiger’s last year in the tournament, the team worked extra hard to secure a win. Trego won with a score of 52-42, with Carter Minson reeling in 21 points to achieve the position of high scorer in the game.

On Friday, December 7, Trego faced Northern Valley. Keeping up, the Eagles pulled ahead of the Huskies in the third quarter, leading by one. In an intense fourth quarter, the two teams were tied at 43-43. The first overtime resulted in a second tie, both teams at 49 points. After the second overtime, there was yet another tie, and the score board read 55-55. In the third and final overtime, the Eagles made a valiant effort, but only added five to the score board; the Huskies put up 11. The game ended in a hard loss for Trego, 60-66. Keagan Shubert scored 17 points and was the top scorer of the game.

Saturday, December 8, proved another tough loss. Against Oakley, the boys had pulled ahead 48-47 with seconds to go. The clock ticked as Oakley moved to offense around their basket. The final shot was made mere moments before the buzzer went off. In great suspense, everyone watched as the ball slid through the goal, adding two to the Plainsmen’s score, leaving the Eagles with a loss of 48-49. Scoring 15 points, Minson again made the most points for Trego.
