The Reading 8th grade boys travelled to Springport Wednesday night to face the 7-1 Spartans. After a tough battle, the Rangers dropped another close one 24-20.
Trailing by 10 at one point, the Rangers’ defense scrambled to close the gap to two, but that was as close as they could get.
Tayshawn Bester led the Rangers with 9 points, followed by Alek Nash with 4, Aiden Bailey with 3, and Colton Hoover and Simon Williams each had 2.
The Rangers closed their regular season with a 4-5 record, and head to Homer next week for the 8th grade tournament. They play at 7:45 Monday night against Homer.
Good luck, Rangers!
