Cavs, Hornets split; Friday’s high school hoops scoreboard

Region races heat up around the Coastal Empire and Low Country

Calvary girls, SCD boys win rivalry matchups

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - This time of year is always a fun one in high school basketball as every possession and basket seems to mean just a bit more. With teams jockeying for region positioning, it’s easy to see why that’s the case.

In midtown Savannah tonight, the Calvary girls and Country Day boys tightened their grip on subregion titles. The Cavalier girls took down the Hornets 57-45 to improve to 7-1 in Region 3-A play, while the Hornet boys held off Calvary for a 66-55 win. It’s Country Day’s 10th straight victory and all but seals the 3-A East subregion crown.

Meanwhile in Swainsboro, one of the state’s most hyped games of the evening was a rout from the early moments. Ranked second in Class AA, the Tigers jumped out to a 35-9 lead over #3 Jeff Davis at the end of the first quarter and cruised to a 97-53 victory.

The win gives the Tigers the Region 2-AA lead with two league games to play.
