WHITEHALL — Camden Thompson is tough enough to stop when he’s got it rolling. A confident and aggressive Trannon Aylor adds another dimension to Whitehall’s boys basketball team.

The duo had it going on in Whitehall’s 82-69 nonconference win over shorthanded Mona Shores Tuesday night, as the tandem combined for 55 points and 20 rebounds. It’s the Vikings’ seventh-straight victory.

Thompson, a 6-foot-5 sophomore, finished with game highs of 31 points and 15 rebounds to go with three steals, three blocks and two assists. Aylor, a 6-3 junior, scored 24 points off the bench and grabbed five boards.
