Varsity boys bounce back
What a difference a day makes. The varsity boys bounced back from  their loss the previous night against one division champion (Central Lee) to defeat another. Riding a hot start, the Pioneers overwhelmed Iowa Mennonite School, champion of the SEI Superconference Northern Division at the Field House.

The game was not as close as the final score of 64-50 indicated, as the hosts stretched a 36-21 halftime margin into a lead of as much as 27 points in the third quarter. After a 2-2 start, David Dannemann hit Zach Silverman with an alley-oop pass. Zach dropped in the basket and converted a free throw when he was fouled on the shot. Zach then hit a 3-pointer, followed by another trey from David. Kevin Craig and Spencer Bright drove to the basket for lay-ups, then Zach led Spencer with a long pass ending in a lay-up. David hurled a long pass to Zach for another score. Suddenly, it was 19-4 for the Pioneers, the game was well in hand, and the home crowd was roaring its approval.

Zach Silverman and other starters retired for the evening with a
61-36 lead and five minutes remaining. Zach had a game-high 26 points and held Nolan Yoder, IMS' leading scorer, to only 6 points. Michael Hauptman added 13 points. He and Kevin, who had a total of 9 points, hit 3-pointers in the third quarter to thwart IMS' full-court
defensive pressure in an attempt to get back into the game. Spencer totaled 5 points, David and Jonathan Jarvis 4 each, Willy Kern 2 points, and Chris Lynch 1.

The entire team played a strong defensive game, forcing Iowa Mennonite into many missed shots, particularly under the basket. David, Chris, and Spencer penetrated well, drawing the defense in, and opening up shots for their teammates. Michael, Zach, Willy, and Kevin contributed strong rebounding on both ends of the court.

The victory leaves Maharishi School with a 13-6 record for the year, heading into a contest on Tuesday, February 12 at West Burlington. The game will begin about 8 p.m. following the junior varsity game at 6:30.
