QUINCY - Omak traveled to Quincy on June 3, with the Jackrabbits taking the victory, 72-58.

“We are a really young team who is learning what it takes to compete at this level for 32 minutes,” said Omak coach Geoff Pearson. “We do some really great things, but are having difficulty sustaining it the entire game.”

Pearson said the team has great leaders and is improving with every game.

“Quincy really dominated us in the second quarter, but we played them evenly the other three,” he said.

Omak was led offensively by Jovan Mercado with 23 points, four rebounds and four assists. Jonny Stenberg had 15 points, while Jacob Hurlbert contributed nine points and six rebounds.

Trey Rose led the Pioneers defensively with six deflections, three steals and three assists.

“Our kids continue to work hard during this interesting time, and I am proud of their continued buy-in,” Pearson said. “Even though we are going through some growing pains, the future of (Omak) basketball is bright.”
