CCHS splits with York; hosts Kingston tonight

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County High School basketball teams opened their home schedule Tuesday night by splitting a pair of games with the York Institute Dragons.

Coach Will Foster's Jets slayed the Dragons 70-56, while the Lady Jets lost the Lady Dragons 51-41.

CCHS 70, York 56: "We played really well and did a great job defensively," said Foster, whose team improved to 4-2 overall. "We played well inside."

Dylan Qualls led the Jets with 23 points, three rebounds, three steals and five steals, while Tayler Houston added 20 points, one assist and three steals and Logan Parsons chipped in 12 points, two rebounds and two steals.

Rounding out the stats were Diego Poore (six points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals), J.J. Miller (four rebounds, one assist, one steal), Tanner Christopher, Alex Dixon, Cade Smith (three points, one assist, one steal), Cameron O'Rourke (six points, seven rebounds, two steals) and Ty Tabor (one rebound).

It was two-man show for the Dragons, as Corbin Patton and John McBride had 23 and 20 points, respectively.

CCHS opened the game with a 5-0 run, but the Dragons took a 6-5 run, before the Jets finished the quarter with a 13-8 spurt for an 18-14 advantage by quarter's end.

The Jets were seven of 15 from the field with two turnovers, but held the Dragons to six of 11 from the floor with three turnovers.

Houston tallied eight of his points in the first stanza.

Qualls scored 12 of his 23 points in the second quarter, as the Jets combined offense with defense to outscore the Dragons 21-10 to take a 39-24 lead at the break. CCHS was seven of 15 from the floor with two turnovers, while holding the Dragons to four of 11 with seven turnovers.

Qualls and O'Rourke scored six third-quarter points each as the Jets built a 56-33 lead; however, Patton scored York's final points of the quarter to slice the lead to 56-38. O'Rourke had six rebounds for the Jets, who were seven of 18 from the field with three miscues.

CCHS rebuilt their lead to 20 points (64-44), but York finished the stanza with a 12-6 run to make the final margin 70-56. McBride had eight points for the Dragons, who were eight of 13 from the field in the final eight minutes.

Lady Dragons 51, CCHS 41: "We must continue to improve our defensive continuity," said Lady Jet coach Radhika Miller, whose team fell to 1-7 overall.

Sloane VanWinkle led the Lady Jets with 18 points and three rebounds. Rounding out the attack were Makenzie Iles (five points, six rebounds, one steal), Gina Dick (seven points, seven rebounds, two assist, three steals), Alli Hyder (one rebound, one steal), Skylar VanWinkle (two rebounds, one steal), Rebekah Teeple (nine points, seven rebounds), Kassidy Sommer (two points, five rebounds, one assist) and Courtney Smith (four rebounds, one assist).

Ashley Wright led York with 13 points.

York took an 8-4 first-quarter advantage, but Sloane VanWinkle would bury the first of her four treys to slice the lead to 8-7; however, the visitors finished the quarter with an 8-2 run to build a 16-9 advantage after one quarter.

CCHS was four of 16 from the floor with two turnovers, while York was five of 15 with one miscue.

Baskets by Teeple and VanWinkle silced the lead to 16-14 to open the second frame, but two layups by Wright triggered an 8-5 spurt to take a 24-19 lead at the break.

Another Wright bucket gave York a seven-point lead, but layups by Teeple and Dick sliced the lead to 26-23; however, a trey by Katelyn Butler gave the Lady Dragons a 29-23 advantage with 5:27 remaining in the third quarter.

York finished the stanza with an 8-5 spurt for a 37-30 advantage.

York outscored CCHS 14-11 in the final quarter to take the victory.

Schedule: CCHS hosts District 4AA member Kingston tonight for homecoming. There will be a junior varsity game and two varsity games, beginning at 4 p.m. Fans can vote for homecoming queen and king through halftime of the girls varsity game.

CCHS will host Upperman Dec. 11 and travel to Kingston Dec. 14, before hosting Stone Memorial Dec. 17.

    Most golfers would like to hit the ball further off the tee with the driver.  Distance may not be as important as accuracy off the tee, but it is very valuable. Longer, straighter drives make the game easier.
