Undefeated league records will be undone and first place teams will fall to second when the Weed Cougars play at rival Mount Shasta next Friday, Jan. 27, 2012.

The Weed and Mount Shasta varsity girls and JV boys teams will all take perfect Shasta Cascade League records into Robert E. Novo Gymnasium that night. So, something has to give.

Weed’s girls (14-2, 4-0)  gave very little in Friday night’s 63-36 Winter Carnival victory over Etna.

Earlier in the week the Cougars trailed visiting Fall River by a point after three quarters then finished with a 14-4 run for a 52-43 victory.

Mount Shasta’s girls improved to 8-8 and 3-0 with their 38-30 win Tuesday at Modoc. The Bears had 20 offensive and 21 defensive rebounds, compared to Modoc’s 6 and 12.

Junior Janelle Jaegel scored 17 points, her fifth double digit scoring effort during a six game Bears’ winning streak. Senior Jeanette Ricci had 7 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 steals; sophomore Kathryn Andrus had 11 rebounds, six on the offensive side.

The Bears’ scheduled games at Fall River Friday were postponed because of poor travel conditions.

Both Mount Shasta and Weed have byes in their SCL schedule Tuesday, Jan. 24. The Bears are scheduled to play West Valley at home that day; Weed is scheduled to play at Mercy in Red Bluff.

Weed’s JV boys stayed unbeaten in both league (4-0) and overall (17-0) with wins against Fall River (79-59) and Etna (63-36).

Mount Shasta’s JV boys improved to 11-1 and 3-0 with a 69-40 win at Modoc.
A 57-52 loss at Modoc dropped Mount Shasta’s varsity boys to 2-1 in league and 11-5 overall, while Fall River (3-0) took over sole possession of first place, and Modoc improved to 3-1.

Weed’s varsity boys lost to Fall River (66-46) and Etna (73-65), despite junior Noah Traylor’s strong offensive performances: 25 points against Etna and 22 against Fall River.

Friday’s win moved Etna (2-2) above the Cougars (1-3) in the SCL standings.
