City Recreation, Feb. 7

Boulder City Parks and Recreation Department’s men’s league basketball is finishing its second round of play on Tuesdays and Thursdays through February. Games begin at 6:30 p.m. in the new gymnasium.

Wasted Talent, which is new to the league this year, is in first place with big 3-point scoring this week from Chris Click and Matt Rapp. Slow and Steady, led by Kodiak Yazzie, and Flight S2S, led by Rob Sandoval and Vemon Clemons, are tied for second place, said Kelly Lehr, sports coordinator.

High scoring from B.C. Kids’ Jaylene Brown and Woodbury Law’s Jordan Peel have those teams in a tight race for fourth place.

High scoring from Tyler Bletsch and Jonas Hernandez from the Credit Union and Ryan Emling from Judge Joe’s Jury this week have both teams in the running for sixth place. The Katz, despite big scoring from Kris Woodard, is trailing the league.

Competition is heating up this season with teams from Boulder City, Henderson and Las Vegas alternating in the spotlight from week to week.

Talent showcase ends league

The department’s youth basketball league has concluded for the 2019 season.
