Friday night was Senior Night in Memorial Gymnasium as the home crowd honored three fantastic seniors; Parker Coombs, Wyatt Roholt (the two are also known as PiCo and the Jet) and Kelton Summers. Memorial Gymnasium was filled to the brim for this one and the home team Bears did not disappoint. With a wild and raucous Dog Pound in all their glory the Bears got out to a great start behind a sizzling hot Ren Fonnesbeck. Ren knocked down four consecutive three-point shots to jump start an already electrified Bear basketball team and left the Ridgeline River Hawks in the rear-view mirror. Joining Ren in the scoring frenzy in the first and decisive quarter was Senior Wyatt Roholt with 6 points and fellow senior Parker Coombs knocking down a three-pointer of his own. Mark Huber joined the fray and scored six points as well to extend the lead to 26-14 after one quarter. That lead was all the Bears needed as they withstood the offensive explosion by Landon Brenchley of Ridgeline doing all he could to keep the game close. Brenchley led all scorers with 30 points but it was not enough to keep pace with an energized and determined Bear River bunch.
Ren Fonnesbeck finished the night with 24 points and 6 made three-pointers He was followed by a great team effort and balanced scoring with Mark Huber finishing with 19 points, Wyatt Roholt with 17 and Parker Coombs with 13. Parker also had 8 assists and 11 rebounds. Kelton Summers played his usual hard-nosed role as he finished with 4 points and 8 rebounds.
