Cavaliers keep on crusing
By Kevin Eckleberry Sports Editor
It was more of the same for the Callaway Cavaliers.
The Cavaliers maintained their perfect Region 4-AAA record with a one-sided victory over the home-standing Rockmart Yellow Jackets Saturday night.
The Cavaliers scored a season-low in points, but it didn’t matter thanks to a suffocating defense.
The Cavaliers (12-2 overall) rolled to a 58-32 victory to improve to 7-0 in region play, and they’re alone in first place.
The Cavaliers have won eight consecutive games overall.
Callaway head coach Terry Hayes said the bench players did a nice job in the first half when many of the starters were in foul trouble.
“Early on, they were calling everything,” Hayes said. “My starters got in foul trouble. They had two or three fouls, and we sent them to the bench. The guys came off the bench and did a heck of a job. Friday night (against B.E.S.T. Academy), my bench didn’t play very well. Tonight, they played real well. I’m as proud as a peacock.”
In Saturday’s girls’ game, the Lady Cavaliers didn’t have any problems in a 60-28 victory.
Zamari Hardnett led the way with 13 points, and Monica Jackson added 11 points.
All 12 Callaway players who got onto the court scored at least two points.
The Lady Cavaliers (9-5 overall) improved to 5-2 in the region, and they’ve won three straight games, and five of six.
Callaway’s teams will be on the road Tuesday against Chapel Hill, and they’ll be back home on Wednesday to face Troup.
Callaway will visit Douglass on Friday before finishing the week at home against Lanett on Saturday.
