Swanton Dominates MVCDS to Win Bob Fisher Holiday Classic


The Swanton Bulldogs took control of the game almost immediately after the tip-off, racing out to a 14-0 lead, and coasted to a 56-25 victory over the Maumee Valley Country Day School Hawks to capture their own Bob Fisher Holiday Classic.

Excellent ball control was a key factor in Swanton’s win, a day after committing numerous turnovers in their 52-45 semi-final win over the Maumee Panthers.  “We had a come-to-Jesus moment before practice this morning about how flat we came out last night,” said Bulldog head coach Bruce Smith.  “Obviously, what we decided to do worked really really well against a very dangerous team.”

Senior Nic Borojevich, in his second game coming off an injury, jump started the Bulldog offense with 10 first quarter points and finished with 23 for the game to lead all scorers.  “He’s healthy again.  He hyperextended his knee against Edgerton and he missed eight days and he wasn’t very good yesterday getting his timing back,” explained Coach Smith.  “In order to beat good teams, we need him to play well.”  Cole Mitchey and Sam Betz each scored 11 points in support.

Swanton will have just a short time to enjoy the Classic victory before they dive into the meat of their schedule after the first of the year.  “It gets real hairy real quick.  Going to Evergreen, going to Ottawa Hills, Wauseon, etc.,” said Smith.  The Bulldogs open the NWOAL season in The Big House at Evergreen High School on Thursday, January 6, 2022.  Game time is 6:00 p.m. for the JV’s and 7:30 p.m. for the varsity.
