Highlanders looking for a few wins as high school season winds down

The Glenvar boys haven’t played in a week, but that’s about to change. . .weather permitting, of course.

Glenvar has games tonight, Friday, and Saturday to end the regular season. Then, the Highlanders will open the Three Rivers District Tournament on Monday. Sites and opponents for the tournament will be decided in the next three days.

The Highlanders would like to get a win or two before the tournament. They play at Auburn tonight, home to Eastern Montgomery on Friday, and home to Giles on Saturday. The Friday is a 7:30 pm varsity only game, following the girls’ varsity. On Saturday it’s a 1 pm jayvee game with the varsity to follow.

“If we can squeak out a couple wins that would be nice,” said coach Adam Gray.

Glenvar is 0-7 in the district but Auburn and Giles have just two wins each. East Mont is a different story, as the Mustangs are 7-2 in the district and second to Radford.

Glenvar’s last game was a 72-50 loss to Radford last Thursday night, in Radford. The Bobcats jumped to a 22-6 lead in the first quarter and were up by 22 points at the half. Scotty Nicewonder had 13 and Eddie Kasper had 11 to lead the Highlanders.

Glenvar’s game with Lord Botetourt, which was scheduled for Saturday, has been cancelled to get the district game with Giles in the books. That was one Glenvar wanted to play, as LB’s only win was against Glenvar and the Highlanders felt like they had a good chance to get them back at home.
