Encampment Boys Basketball Wrap [VIDEO]
The Encampment boys basketball team had very high hopes for the 2019-20 season. But with the unpredictable nature of March Madness, sometimes goals aren't achieved. At the State 1A Tournament, the Tigers won their first-round game over Hanna-Elk Mountain 66-42. Dayne Anderson led the way with 17, Reid Schroeder had 17, with Dalton Peterson coming through with 16 points and 14 rebounds. In the semi-final round, Encampment was defeated by Farson-Eden 42-39. The Tigers did not have a single player in double figures which was highly unusual, plus they went to the free-throw line just 3 times, making 2. Encampment redeemed themselves with a 66-63 win over Upton in the 3rd place game. The Tigers held off a furious Upton rally to finish 25-2. Dayne Anderson went off for 25 points with Peterson and Schoeder throwing in 15 each.
For the season, Dalton Peterson averaged 20 points and 9 rebounds per game and was named all-state for the 2nd year in a row, Reid Schoeder was named all-state for the 3rd year in a row and averaged a dozen points per game. Dayne Anderson contributed 15 a game and was named all-conference with Koye Gilbert earned all-conference status.
Schroeder and Anderson were seniors so that's a lot to replace moving forward, But Peterson will be a senior next year and Gilbert will be a junior, so the cupboard isn't bare by any means.
