North Stanly girls top Jackets; West Stanly loses to Cuthbertson

Thursday, February 14, 2013 — In the final week of the regular season for basketball, the basketball teams of North and West Stanly hosted Rocky River Conference home games.

Girls

North Stanly 62

Forest Hills 59


The North Stanly girls took the home floor for the next-to-last time this regular season, hosting a Forest Hills squad that had previously beaten the Comets 48-29 in Marshville on Dec. 7 in North’s RRC opener this season.

Missing their head coach Greg Speight, who was suffering from the flu, the Comets overcame a 12-point halftime deficit and earned a 62-59 win over the Jackets.

Cuthbertson 49

West Stanly 37


Tuesday night was Senior Night at the Colts Corral, where all five starters were honored alongside their parents. What makes these final home games so special is the way these young people are not only recognized for their athletic prowess, but for their academic achievements as these seniors are all college bound.

The game began with the Lady Cavaliers and the Lady Colts on an even keel. Devon Fincher and Kayla Chapman sparked much crowd noise as they connected on three pointers.

Yet, the Cavs accomplished a feat throughout the entire game which earned them a 49-37 win.

Boys

Forest Hills 92

North Stanly 65


The North Stanly boys’ basketball team fell to 6-17 overall and 2-11 in the RRC with a 92-65 home loss Tuesday night to Forest Hills.

FH 21 23 21 27 92

NS 12 21 14 18 65


NS – Tyler Burris 16, Kasey Caulder 14, T.J. Smith 14, Misenheimer 8, Sylvester 7, Greene 4, Reid 2.

Cuthbertson 49

West Stanly 37


The Cuthbertson boys varsity basketball team is the number one Class 2A team in the state. One of the main reasons why is the play of Wake Fores-bound point guard Sheldon Mitchell, who did not play at West Stanly Tuesday night due to an injury.

A reason for their elite ranking is the team’s overall lightning quickness at both ends of the court. This was especially true of senior guard Emmitt Aram, who is no stranger to RRC opponents as a blue-chip college football prospect who also has a spectacular game on the gym floor.

With the exception of the first quarter, the Colts went toe-to-toe with Cuthbertson, losing 78-65.

C 16 23 16 23 78

WS 6 21 15 23 65


C – Afam 23, Cureton 16, Hardrick 10, Austin 8, McMillon 7, Stradford 7, Chitwood 7

WS – B.J. Hill 20, Colton Hathcock 10, Martin 9, Eudy 8, Rowe 6, Whitley 4, Burgess 4, Barbee 3, McCormick 1.
