After opening their season with a 39-64 road loss against Tuttle, Wes Pulliam’s Newcastle Racers had dreams of revenge when the Tigers paid a visit to Newcastle High School Feb. 7. 

Revenge was precisely what they got when the Racers pulled off a spectacular upset against the former one-loss team, trouncing the Tigers 51-43. 

The Racers (12-8) have been on a 4-1 run since taking third in the Newcastle Tournament, delivering the Tigers (17-2) their second loss of the season. 

Casey Freeman led a Newcastle squad that saw three players record double digits in points, notching a team-high 15 points and eight rebounds. Caleb Nichols contributed 11 points, while Issac Johnson recorded 13 points and two assists. 

Tuttle’s Dalton Secrist contributed seven points, 10 rebounds and a block for the Tigers, but it was not enough to stop the Racers from their second straight win. 

The loss bumped Tuttle down two spots to #9, while the Racers remain unranked in Class 4A.
