Dayton-Waitsburg's hot-shooting 5-10 senior guard Dylan Bledsoe has been putting in some overtime for the Wolfpack cause, putting up good numbers for his team against Colfax and TriCities Prep recently. Bledsoe hit seven treys against Colfax, scoring a team high 29, and sank four of 10 against Prep, counting 22 in the game.

BURBANK–The Dayton-Waitsburg Wolfpack is now 0-6 going into the Christmas Break after dropping games to Columbia-Burbank, Colfax and TriCities Prep.

Games have been fast paced but the Wolfpack has struggled with consistency on offense and defense as the Columbia Coyotes defeated them 82-32, the Colfax Bulldogs walked away with a 74-45 win and TCP's Jaguars counted a closer 56-45 win on Dec. 14.

When play resumes in 2022, DW hosts Garfield-Palouse at the Dayton Gym on Tuesday, January 4 then journeys to River View Jan. 11.

The lid was on the bucket for the Wolfpack at Burbank on Dec. 18, as the Coyotes ran off with a 21-2 first quarter and kept up the scoring with a 29-10 second stanza to hold a 50-12 half time lead. DW bounced back, matching C-B with a 16-point third period but the Coyotes coasted to the 82-32 win.

Columbia held Dylan Bledsoe to seven points while Ryland Kilts scored 11 and Blake French 10 to pick up some of the slack. Coyote Quincy Scott hit 30 points and Tristian Frimodt made 25.

Against visiting Colfax, Bledsoe was draining threes from his favorite baseline spot, but it wasn't enough without scoring from teammates and the defense falling short defending John Lustig, who scored 37 for the Bulldogs.

The Wolfpack was in it through the first period, trailing by nine, 23-14, but then dropped into chilly mode with seven second-quarter points and nine in the third. They trailed Colfax 39-21 at halftime and 61-30 after three periods before finishing with a 15-13 fourth quarter.

Two big quarters for TriCities Prep on Dec. 14 spelled the difference in the game. The Jaguars jumped to a seven-point lead after one quarter, 15-8, and finished the first half with the same seven-point lead, 29-22. DW dropped further behind in the third, giving up six points in the 16-10 quarter and the fairly even fourth period, 13-11, didn't make up the difference.
