Eaton boys basketball defeat Valley 75 – 41 during Tuesday the 22nd’s home game. This game had a different start than others the Reds had played. The Eaton boys team and their coaches honored an Eaton community member, Tim Stanclift. Assistant Coach Amy Ross led the team in honoring Stanclift, a fellow staff member at EHS. Ross and the team decided to honor Stanclift because of his personal ties to the team and the community. Stanclift has a grandson on the basketball team, Dirk Duncan, and his son-in-law is assistant Coach Dustin Duncan. Ross and members of the team were motivated by their personal connection to Stanclift.

Ross said, “We’ve always done cancer fundraising but we’ve recently had members of our community affected by cancer and we to give our money went directly to a community member. So when we found out that Tim was battling cancer it became an obvious choice for someone to honor.” All of the proceeds from the Boys Basketball tee shirt sales will go to the Stanclift family to support Tim in his battle against cancer.

After this dedication the Reds began the basketball game. Reds led in scoring throughout the game with a halftime score of 38 – 21 and ended with a final score of 75 – 41. Eaton’s leading scorer, Scott Grable (21) put up 29 of Eaton’s 75 points. Grable commented on the team wins, saying “The game went very good. We shared the ball, and I think the game itself proved how good we can be when we make our shots and work together.” Another team member, Junior Bryce Leafgren stated his plans for the rest of the season, “Our hopes for the rest of the season is to make the playoffs and try to make some noise”. Eaton will play at home Tuesday the 30th, against the high ranked, Resurrection Christian Cougars.
