Washington High School girls basketball player Emma Boehmer is the Washington Missourian Athlete of the Week.
Boehmer, a 6-0 junior forward, is averaging 7.6 points and 5.6 rebounds per game in helping the Blue Jays to a 15-1 record. She’s shooting 67 percent from the field (49 for 73) and gives the team an important presence on the low post.
“Emma has really started to play well for us this season,” said Washington Head Coach Adam Fischer. “She has added another scoring option to our team when our guards get all of the focus. Her ability to set screens and find the opening after setting the screen has helped our team progress to where we are right now.”
The Washington Middle School boys basketball teams recently completed their 2015-16 season.
It was a memorable season for the seventh grade team, finishing with a 13-0 record and capping it with a first-place finish at the Sullivan Tournament.
The seventh grade Blue Jays were coached by Mike Scheer.
“We had 13 players with a lot of talent. Enough so, that I went with two teams of six and seven and rotated them five in and five out every three minutes,” Scheer said. “Our biggest highlight was going 13-0. Our biggest two wins were against Pacific and Union in the last two games of the season in the Sullivan Tournament. Both were tough games and my guys played like the champions they are. This team won because of the willingness to sacrifice playing time for wins."
Team members were Aidan Piar-Shaw, Jack Lackman, Conner Maher, Luke Kroeter, Cole Maune, Jason Sides, Riley West, Brigham Broadbent, Jarrett Hamlett, Nate Harbath, Bryce Kazmaier, Todd Bieg and Ryan Hoerstkamp.
The eighth grade Blue Jays, coached by Colin Flynn, finished the season with a record of 8-5.
They started the season with a second-place finish at the Union Tournament with wins over Pacific and St. Clair before losing in the championship game to Sullivan.
“In the regular season, we notched victories over Rolla, Union, Hermann, Pacific, New Haven and Owensville,” Flynn said. “The game against Rolla was our best game as a team. We shot terrific from outside, ran the offense to create easy shots in the lane, and scored in transition throughout the game.”
Team members were Luke Wilson, Kale Nappier, Evan Jarvis, Tate Hendricks, Hunter Caldwell, Bryce Mayer, Drew Holtmeyer, Logan Roewe, Trevor Rinne, Kaden Golic, Trent Strubberg, Connor Vollmer, Jeremiah Broadbent and Seth Crider.
