ATHENA — Weston-McEwen went 2-0 over the weekend to improve to a perfect 4-0 on the season.

W-M won 54-47 over Waitsburg-Prescott Friday and were triumphant on a triple at the buzzer by Jacob Ramirez in a win over Riverside, 53-52, Saturday.

Ramirez had 18 total assists and 17 steals in addition to 10 points in the weekend’s games.

Tyler Peterson led the TigerScots with 34 points on the weekend and Zane Chapman dropped in a steady 11 points each game.

“Riverside is a bigger school and they had some taller guys,” W-M coach Brian Pickard said. “So it was a good test for our posts and our whole team really.

“The first several games we’ve had different guys leading the team in scoring and a lot of the guys contributing points. So it has made us hard to defend.”

The TigerScots take to the floor again Monday at Waitsburg-Prescott for a 7:30 p.m. tip.
