HUTCHINSON — The Newton middle school seventh-grade boys’ basketball teams fell to Hutchinson Thursday in Hutchinson.
The A team lost 49-26. The B team lost 41-29.
“Hutchinson got out to a really big lead (in the A game),” Newton coach James Wiens said. “They are one of the best seventh-grade teams I have seen take the floor. They have great shooters. We had a tough time handling the full-court pressure they gave us. After halftime, we made some adjustments and made some things happen.
“In the B game, we tried to attack them and push the ball up the floor. We gave them a run for their money.”
