Behind the double-digit scoring of three players, the Hermann Varsity Bearcats Tuesday night won their first-round game in the South Callaway Invitational Tournament — a 52-44 decision over the North Callaway Thunderbirds.
Hermann is seeded 5th in the tourney while North Callaway came into the event as the 4th seed.
Head Coach Josh Vinyard’s Bearcats will take on the Montgomery County Wildcats tomorrow night in a semi-final round.
Junior Rhet Scheidegger led all scorers with 19 points, including Hermann’s only 3-point bucket.
Other Bearcats posting double-digit scoring were Chet Moeckli with 11 and Aaron Overkamp with 10.
