Kedrick Ramsey and Ja’Vontay Boddie each scored eight points for the Cavaliers.

“I was proud of the guys,” Callaway head coach Terry Hayes said. “They never quit.”

In the girls’ game, Callaway lost to Spencer 43-40.

It was tied through three quarters, and Spencer outscored Callaway 16-13 in the final period to earn the narrow win.
