In the second quarter, Widmer scored five of the Jaguars 10 points. While statistics showed that Widmer played well at the basket, he agreed.

[My strengths tonight were] attacking the basket and getting good shots,” Widmer said.

The Jaguars led the Chieftains 29-26 at the half.

Winter Homecoming coronation took place at halftime. Seniors Sebastian Uriarte and Mikaela McCabe were crowned King and Queen.
