Boys basketball: Travis Marnell, Ryan Merget lift Huskies to win

By

Travis Marnell and Ryan Merget provided plenty of offensive punch as the Highland High School boys basketball team defeated visiting Rhinebeck 69-49 on Tuesday.

A 6-foot-1 sophomore, Marnell scored a career-high 29 points and grabbed a career-high 12 rebounds filling in for center David George, who missed the game for family reasons. Merget, a 6-1 junior swingman, had 29 points and six rebounds. Huskies point guard Bo Garcia had eight assists.

“Travis is a very athletic kid who jumps well and he’s tough to stop on the inside,” Highland coach Mike Milliman said. “They are two very athletic kids and they had a very nice game.”

This season Highland is 7-5, only a year after the Huskies went 1-15.

“The kids work hard and they play very well together,” Milliman said.

Nick Hoynes led Rhinebeck (4-8) with 20 points. Paul Henke added 12 points.

Highland visits Franklin D. Roosevelt Friday at 5:45 p.m. Rhinebeck hosts Onteora on Friday at 6:30 p.m.
