The Middlesex High School junior varsity basketball team had its first scrimmage against New Kent on Thursday, November 16.

The Chargers have three returning players—Alex Bullock, Matt Hart and Davion Washington. 

The team is again being coached by LaMar Gresham and assisted by Kelvin Reed. “We are a young team, once again, but we have a talented group of young men,” said Gresham. “We are not very big, but we are fast and smart.

“We have five eighth-graders joining the high schoolers, but they are showing a level of maturity that will make them competitors this year. This promises to be a great year for Middlesex boys basketball,” he said.

Other players on the team are Michael Barney, Wyatt Brown, Talon Cheatham, Bryan Diggs, Cameron Hammond, Phillip Hart, Shawn Jackson, Jakim Lomax, Avont Nelson, Cassidy Ward and Legend Watson.

The Chargers will open their regular season play at home against Colonial Beach on Tuesday, November 28. JV games are at 5:30 p.m. and varsity games are at 7 p.m.
