New el­e­va­tion

New­ton boys wait­ing for Stephen­son

The Covington News - - Sports - By Ja­son Mur­dock

De­spite a few set­backs due to in­jury and ill­ness, it should nev­er­the­less be a good matchup when the Rams take on Stephen­son this evening on Se­nior Night at New­ton High.

How­ever, a New­ton win will come as no small task, as sev­eral play­ers have been go­ing through in­juries and a flu bug that has re­ally af­fected them lately.

“It’s been in­ter­est­ing,” said New­ton coach Rick Ras­mussen.

Last Tues­day, Mon­trell Grimes rolled his an­kle prior to tipoff against M.L. King. But even with the heav­ily taped an­kle, he still dropped 20 points. On Satur­day, Ja­mon Hawkins (bruised knee) and Sean Monk (shoul­der) each went down in the win over Salem on the road.

Sky­ward: New­ton’s Tevin Bradley (22) soars for two of his 10 points in a 66-49 loss on Jan. 11 at Stephen­son. The Rams will host the Jaguars tonight at New­ton High School.
