Junior varsity Little Bucs set to improve on last year’s mark


TENNERTON – With four players returning from last year’s 5-9 team the Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School junior varsity Little Bucs look in  good shape for the 2018-19 basketball season.

The returnees are guards Bryson Johnston and Ian Strader, and forwards Luke Yardley and Jaden Westfall.

The newcomers are seventh graders Nathaniel Ringer (G), Michael Farrar (F) and Jacob Dodd (G), and sixth graders Colin Bailey (G), Carter Zuliani (F), Jonas Barton (C), Landon Marple (G) and Easton Perkins (G).

The Little Bucs will open the season Saturday in round play action, with Buckhannon facing Robert L. Bland and Elkins battling Washington Irving. They will then host Elkins on Dec. 4.
