S’ville JV hoopsters win Sonora Tournament

The Union Democrat Sports Department

The Summerville Bears junior varsity boys' basketball team swept the competition at the Sonora Wildcats' preseason tournament this past weekend.

On Friday, Summerville edged Sonora 58-55.

The Wildcats led 43-37 after three quarters, but that advantage was trimmed by Summerville's Chad Sweitzer, who hit two crucial 3-pointers in the final period to lead a late Bears' rally.

Jake Noonan led the Bears with 11 points and Cole Brewster finished with nine.

The Bears defeated Argonaut 70-58 in their Saturday morning game.

Summerville bolted out to a 35-23 lead at halftime and coasted the last two quarters to win back-to-back matches.

Sam Burns was the top scorer for the Bears with 14 points, and Cameron Saunders and Noonan both chipped in 13. Sweitzer nailed two 3-pointers and ended with 10 points.

Against Tioga High's varsity later in the day, the Bears beat the Timberwolves 57-49 to cap off their three-game winning streak.

Burns dropped a team-best 17 points and Brewster drained 11 to lead the Bears to the title.

"The tournament was a true team effort as every team member scored and grabbed at least one rebound," said Summerville JV head coach Mike McLaurin.
