Bethel Tigers and Glen Este Trojans are the county’s best in their boys basketball races

Many of Clermont County’s varsity boys basketball squads have been earning victories of late. Bethel-Tate and Goshen have been steadily pulling away from the pack in the Southern Buckeye Conference American Division and Glen Este has been gaining victories in the Buckeye Division of the Fort Ancient Valley Conference.


The Tigers clobbered Fayetteville 74-43 in non-conference play on the winners’ court. The Rockets surprisingly led their hosts 19-16 after the first period, but the Tigers recovered to lead 43-28 and 60-37 after the next halts.

Leading the Clermont countians’ scoring was senior forward Louie Schaljo with 20 points and junior forward Tyler Bullock with 17.
