Lovejoy High School
The JV Red wrapped up their season with a defeat at the hands of Highland Park’s Sophomore team. When these teams squared off previously, Highland Park cruised to a 30 point victory but Monday night was a little different story. Gavin Klinger sparked the Leopards to 15 first quarter points with a couple of nice finishes and multiple assists. The game remained a single-digit affair all the way through with the Leopards having a couple of good looks in the last 3 minutes to cut the game to a one-point margin. Unfortunately, they couldn’t get them to fall and saw Highland Park hit late free-throws to push the lead out to the 10 point final. Naren Kalavala and Christian Carswell both hit multiple three’s to help lead the offense while Rendle McCartney and Brice Braithwaite did a good job defensively and on the glass.
