Shootouts in the summer time

North Adams hosts JV and Freshmen Boys – 

Story and photos by Mark Carpenter – 

The summer basketball action continued here in Adams County as North Adams High School hosted a shootout for JV and Freshmen boys squads on June 13. Lots of teams like the day-long shootout format, which allows them to play four or five games against different competition. This Tuesday shootout at NAHS featured the host Green Devils, plus West Union, Peebles, Ripley, and Southeastern Ross.
To get more games played in a shorter period of time, the NAHS Shootout was set up with two games going on at the same time in the gym, JV on one end and freshmen on the other, which makes for a little bit of confusion and some cramped quarters, but all went off smoothly.

West Union’s Zane Kingsolver goes airborne to the basket in action from the June 13 JV / Freshman Boys Basketball Shootout at North Adams High School. Kingsolver and the Dragons went undefeated on the day, winning all four of their outings.

The very first match up of the day was a 9 a.m. tip off featuring the JV squads from North Adams and West Union and the Dragons’ JV began what turned out to be an unbeaten day for them by downing the host squad.
Two games later, it was another all-county match up taking place on both ends. In JV action, it was North Adams topping Peebles 34-26 and on the other end of the court, it was the Devils’ ninth graders also downing Peebles by a final count of 46-24.
Next up was West Union again, as the Dragons’ JV did something they were known for last winter and that is put up a bunch of points quickly, as they outgunned Southeastern 65-37. The results were the opposite on the other end as the Southeastern freshmen topped West Union 43-21.
The Dragons JV squad later posted a win over Peebles to go 4-0 on the day, a successful outing for Coach Austin Kingsolver and his troops.
“With it being summer time and having to piece together a team to go play, the kids really stepped up today and played hard,” said Kingsolver. “I always tell them that if they play hard, fast, and physical, they will be successful. It’s nice to see each and every player working so hard to get better over the summer months.”
Local hoops fans who want to get a summer peek at their favorite boys teams can still do so for the rest of the month of June. The West Union squad will be at Eastern Brown this Saturday, June 24, and on that same day, Peebles will host a Junior High shootout. The North Adams varsity boys will be at New Boston on June 28 and the next day (June 29) the varsity five from Manchester will be part of the Peebles Team Shootout.
