With victories over Paola Middle School and cross town rival Wheatridge Middle School, the Pioneer Ridge Middle School eighth-grade Jaquar team wrapped up a perfect 16-0 season Feb. 28.
“This group obviously had a very successful season,” Coach Kevin Collins said.
PRMS nabbed a 49-25 win over Paola, and followed up that victory with a 56-19 rally over the Wheatridge Mustangs.
Corbin Schrack added 18 points in the evening, while Lucas Soza and Brody Marhsall had 16 points apiece. Trent Cochran netted seven points, and Gage Gulley and Tyler Chafee had three points each.
“The group had a great attitude, were very coachable, and played as a team,” Collins said. “It was a privilege to work with them.”
