Mena’s Junior Bearcat basketball season ended Tuesday night with a nail biting loss (41-36) to the Nashville Scrappers during round two of the 7West-4A District Basketball Tournament being played in Waldron this week. The games were broadcast on KQOR 105.3 FM.
The team has shown exceptional talent and has many excited about the program’s future as the team matures and moves into senior high play. The team has performed well against strong teams, specifically, against an, at the time, undefeated Ashdown team that came to Mena on January 25, and left defeated, 64-60, after double overtime.
The Junior Bearcats defeated Fountain Lake in the first round of district tournament action on Saturday, 37-29.
Head Coach is Thomas Powell and Assistant Coach is Randy Peters.
