GRAND MEADOW — The No. 7 seeded Grand Meadow boys basketball team held of No. 10 LeRoy-Ostrander (2-25 overall) 68-52 in a Section 1A East Division play-in game in GM Tuesday.

Freshman Landon Jacobson scored 15 points for the Superlarks (9-17 overall).

“We knew going into this game if we didn’t play well that we would be in for a tough game,” GM head coach Chad Burmester said. “L-O did a good job of getting back into the game after we built a bit of the lead but the changing point came in the second half when we switched defenses and it really seemed to swing the momentum back in our favor.”
