Posted on Wednesday, January 10, 2018 at 8:57 am

Hermann’s Rhet Scheidegger (20), seen here bringing the ball up the court against a Wright City defender in a recent game, scored 19 points to lead the Bearcats over North Callaway Tuesday night in the South Callaway Tournament.

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.
