A Game of Heart: Boys Basketball Falls to JC in Districts


Olivia Kucsik


For the second time in a week, the Cavaliers faced off against their cross town rival, the Jefferson City Jays. In light of Jeff City’s seemingly home-court advantage, the Cavaliers put up a great fight. After being tied 13-13 at the end of the first quarter, the CC upheld their commitment to team play as noted by sophomore guard, Robert Gray, “We made a lot of unselfish plays and created a lot of opportunities for my teammates.”

Towards the end of the first half, the Jays began to break away, 33-24. The Cavaliers came into the second half with a reignited passion to finish out the game. Despite limited seating, the upperclassmen lead the Capital City student section long beyond the final whistle.

As the buzzer struct zero, Jefferson City ultimately took the win, 69-56.

Junior Thomas Kesete commended the student section and promised to put in the work this summer to win more for them next year.

Great job Cavs, we’ll get them next season.
