Middlesex JVs win district championship

Middlesex High School JV Chargers

With wins over Mathews in West Point in their final two games, the Middlesex High junior varsity boys basketball team won the Tidewater District championship with a 9-1 record.

West Point and Mathews tied for second with 8-2 records.

On Tuesday at West Point, Jeremiah Morris turned in an outstanding defensive performance on the Pointers’ top scorer to lead MHS to 60-55 win. The Chargers rallied from a 13-point second half deficit.

Ryheem Lockley scored 17 points, Jaspar Smith had 13, and Jeremy Rich 11 to lead MHS.

Last Friday at Mathews, the Chargers won 52-38 to avenge their only district loss of the season. Lockley tallied 21 points and Smith had 15, including three 3-pointers. Two of his 3-pointers came in the fourth quarter and sealed the win.

“The boys worked hard every day and learned how to play well as a team,” said coach Jason Daniel. “They accomplished their goals of winning a district championship. I am very proud of each and every member of the team for all their dedication. I want to thank Coach Parker and Coach Duke for all their hard work and the parents for all of their support. I also thank Coach Bailey for giving me the opportunity and for believing in me.”
