A full slate of middle school basketball action is on the schedule day as Andrew Lewis and Glenvar boys and girls all have games.
The Lewis girls will be at home to play host to Cave Spring today. The Wolverines remained undefeated with a 48-5 win over Northside in Salem Monday. Kat Gibson had 10 points to lead Lewis while Brinkle Hall and Jenna Wilkes had eight points each. Hall also had five assists.
Lewis beat Hidden Valley last Thursday, 38-8. Kourtney Goens led the way with 10 boys.
The Lewis boys will be at Cave Spring today. The Wolverines lost for the first time Monday when they fell at Northside, 58-28, to drop to 4-1. Last week Kysheed Arrington had eight points and Tanner Overstreet hit two three points as Lewis beat Hidden Valley, 38-25.
Glenvar’s middle school teams will take on Radford today with a doubleheader at GMS. The boys will tip things off at 4:30 pm with the girls to follow at 6 pm.
The Glenvar boys lost to Cave Spring Monday, 49-35, despite 11 points by Jax Bolling and 11 rebounds and five steals by Levi King. Last Thursday the boys beat Carroll County, 45-19. JD Williamson had 13 points, Brody Williams had eight steals and Evan Harris pulled a half dozen boards.
The girls had a nail-biter at home with Cave Spring Monday before falling 22-20. The game was tied after three quarters and the Highlanders, down town, had three shots in the final seconds but couldn’t get one to fall. Kinley Phillips and Grace Fiedler had six points each for GMS.
Last Thursday the Glenvar girls lost to Carroll, 27-13. Fiedler was the leading scorer with four oints.
“Carroll County pressed us hard the entire game and we struggled to break the press,” said Highlander coach Andrew Quillan. “We are still young and not quite there in our confidence.”
