Just two weeks remain in the high school basketball regular season and Tuesday night Wetmore went on the road and swept Troy winning the girl’s game 58-21 and the boy’s 50-43.

GIRLS: Wetmore 58, Troy 21

The girl’s game was all Wetmore from the start as the Cardinals raced out to a 16-6 lead after the first quarter behind 10 points in the quarter from senior Reagan Osterhaus.

Her strong play continued into the second where she scored eight more points as the Cardinals ballooned their lead to 22 going into the break to lead 31-9.

The lead was trimmed down to 15 points early in the third quarter behind a pair of 3-pointers from Troy’s Reagan Hill and Paityn Engeman, but Wetmore responded with seven from junior Kenzie Strathman to push the lead to 26 going into the fourth.

In the fourth the Cardinals quickly got the lead to 30 to force a running clock the remainder of the way as Osterhaus finished with a game-high 24 points including at least seven blocks and 10 rebounds.

Troy was led in the loss by Claire Winder and Paityn Engeman who each scored six.

BOYS: Wetmore 50, Troy 43

The boy’s game was back-and-forth throughout with Wetmore taking a 12-10 after the first quarter and a 17-16 lead into the halftime break.

In the third quarter the Cardinals started to take control with Kael McQueen scoring eight points in the frame as Wetmore outscored Troy 15-9 to take a 32-25 lead into the fourth.

In the fourth Troy tried to make runs to get back in the game, but Wetmore hit 9-of-14 free throw attempts down the stretch to ice the game away.

McQueen led the way for the Cardinals with 17 points while Jacob Karls added 13 as Wetmore improved to 9-8 with the win.

Troy was led in the loss by Keaton Neuman who scored 14 points while Jerrit Norris added 13.
