10 I The Lovell Chronicle I February 22, 2018 BY DAVID PECK Coach Pat Winland called it a tune-up, but perhaps the Rocky Moun- tain's win over Shosho- ni Saturday was more like a statement as the Grizz pounded on the visitors from Fremont County, 66- 11, in Cowley. "It was the last tune- up before Regionals for us, and we definitely came out firing on all cylinders ' Winland said. "I'm happy we came out healthy??' The afternoon game was the final home out- ing for seniors Jonathan Allred, Scott Banks, Col- by Davidson, Tristan Jew- ell and Lathan May, and the five started the game as the Grizz quickly went up 8-0 and had two more runs of 6-0 and 8-0 as they led 22-4 at the end of the first quarter. Davidson was on fire for the Grizz, driving to the basket, hitting the boards for follow shots and scor- same in the third quarter as the Grizzlies outscored Shoshoni 23-5 to lead 60- 11 after three, reaching the 40-point mercy rule run- ning clock at 50-9 on a Davison fast-break buck- et midway through the quarter. Rocky won the time-shortened : fourth quarter 6-0. "I can't think of a bet- ter way for those seniors to go ouff' Winland said. Davidson finished with a game high 22 points, hit- ting 11 of 13 shots from the field. Allred added 12 points, freshman Jayden Hocker t0, May 7 and Price 5. The Grizz shot 61 per- cent from the field (30 of 49) and had 23 assists, sev- en from Jewell and four from freshman Jess Wam- beke.

REGIONAL TOURNEY The Grizz (18-2) will begin the 2A West Region- al Tournament at 4 p.m. today (Thursday) at Riv- erton High School with a game against 1-19 Kem- merer, the fourth seed out of the Southwest. A win would place the Grizz in a 7:30 p.m. semifinal against either Wyoming Indian or Greybull at 7:30 p.m. Friday. "Our focus is on Kem- merer first," Winland said, "We have to keep the same mentality, one game at a time, like we have all year. Obviously, we have tape on all of the teams down there. For sure we'll pre- pare for seeing some half- court and three-quarter- court pressure defense??' DAVID PECK Rocky freshman Jayden Hocker swoops to the hoop in the Grizzlies' senior night win over Shoshoni Saturday afternoon in Cowley. Hocker had 10 points in the game.

"For the most part we kind of finished one place lower across the board than we should have ' Rob- ertson said. "It was a little bit disappointing there. "We lost to people we had beat before, or we would be ahead and do something ridiculous to lose the match at pivot- al moments, meat-grinder moments." Still, the Grizz battled to an overall record of 9-5 in matches wrestled Sat- urday as freshman Tonka Lytle placed second at 126 pounds, juniors Travis Ly- tie and Nathan Hatch third at 132 and 170 pounds, re- "Laird gave him a better run than he has in the past" Robertson said.
