Tournament brings Runner-up for Jr. Boys

The Mena Jr. Boys came up just short of defending their title at the Bear State Bank in Waldron.  Seeded number one, the Jr. Bearcats started the tournament with a sound 44-28 victory over Cossatot River Jr. Eagles to propel them into the finals against the host team.  After a slow start, the Jr. Bearcats clawed their way back to within 5 points (30-35) at the start of the 4th quarter.  Waldron's 3 point shooting proved the difference and the Jr. Bearcats fell 34-54 which left them with the Runner-up trophy.

The Jr. Bearcats (3-2) will next be in action in Hot Springs against Lakeside on Monday, November 28th.
