Cowboys top Gladstone

Crook County Cowboys celebrate after their 71-69 win over Gladstone Jan. 24

In a game that easily could have gone either way, the Crook County High School boys basketball team survived, taking a 71-69 victory over the Gladstone Gladiators Tuesday, Jan. 24 in Prineville.

“Our kids resilience tonight was what won us that game, not our execution or anything like that,” said Crook County head coach Jason Mumm. "We never quit and we got some calls down the stretch which helps, but you have got to give credit to Gladstone too. They played all out. They got after us from the start and they played really well and had a shot to beat us.”
