Chris Cragun (10), who is a frequent starter, dribbles up the court in the opening game of the season against Fairmount. 7th win first game, end 5-8 " Disappointing season, " said Mr. Daniel, in his first year of coaching, as his seventh grade basketball team ended up the season with a 5-8 record. Mr. Daniel also stated that part of the reason they had a losing season was that some players had experience and others didn ' t. Jones seventh graders started the season off in winning fashion by defeating Fairmount 28-21 in the first home basketball game at Jones. They kept themselves on the winning track by nudging past J. C. Knight 25-20 in overtime. Along came the tournament and Jones despite the fact they won their first two games, would be entering with a 5-6 record. They would play McCulloch in hopes they could get revenge for an earlier loss in the season, but it turned out McCulloch was too much as Jones lost to them 53-26. There was no consolation because the weather prevented Hartford City, the fourth team, from making it. This gave Justice a bye to the championship. " We took bad shots and didn ' t have enough rebounding, " said Ronnie Drake on why he felt the seventh grade lost the city tournament. Jones seventh grade " A " and " B " teams ended their season with a road game against Justice. At firs t it looked as though Justice would run away with the " A " team game as they led 23-6 midway in the second quarter. Although Justice was ahead at the half something ignited the seventh graders to tie Justice 30-30 at the end of the third quarter. The last quarter was a fight to the finish. However, the finish wasn ' t liked by Jones as they lost in the final moments of the game 37-35. The Jones " B " team took the game against Justice worse as they were whipped 48-23, as they ended the season with a disappointing 1-4 record. Jones Team Opp. 28 Fairmount 21 25 J. C.
