JV roundup: DHS boys bring home Les Curry title

The Davis High junior varsity basketball team swept through its own Les Curry Invitational last weekend to secure its first tournament title of the season.

Along the way, the Blue Devils topped Grant, 56-31, and edged Chico, 47-41, to reach the championship contest. There, DHS  rolled past Rodriguez, 61-51, on Saturday to clinch the crown.

The Devils breezed through their first game, holding the Pacers to less than 10 points in each quarter. The dominant defense was a team effort as nine Davis players combined to record 15 steals.

On the other end of the court, the locals got offensive contributions from nearly every player on the roster. Jordan Frost and Cole Skaggs led the Blue Devil charge with 12 points each, while Thomas McTygue was close behind with nine. Kevin Austin led the squad with five assists and fellow guard Matt Cheung had four.

DHS’ second game was a much closer affair, but it rode big opening and closing quarters to victory. The Devils outscored Chico, 32-15, in those two periods combined.

Austin led all scorers in the win as he hung 20 points on the Panther defense. Austin, who recently returned from a leg injury, knocked down two 3-pointers and hit seven free throws on his way to a season-high scoring output.

Austin’s big game was supplemented by 11 from McTygue, who also had four rebounds. Much of McTygue’s scoring came off of knifing drives to the basket as he took advantage of a defense concerned with stopping the long ball.

Will Bodendorfer added seven points for Davis, along with tough defense.

The rest of the team echoed Bodendorfer’s tough play on that end of the floor as the locals held a potent Chico offense to a quiet night. The Blue Devils picked the Panthers’ pockets 11 times in the game and held Chico to 29 percent shooting.

It was more of the same for DHS in the championship matchup, where the Devils used a chaotic press defense to force 22 turnovers, many of which were converted into points on the other end.

McTygue had another excellent game, scoring 12 points while grabbing nine rebounds and dishing out three assists, while Austin also had 12 points. Freshman Griffin Duisenberg knocked down a key 3-pointer for the locals.

McTygue was named to the all-tournament team by coach Bruce Berry, an honor well deserved for a player who had 32 points and 17 rebounds in the three games. Austin was named team MVP for the tournament, as his 37 points led the squad and his ability to drive and draw the defense led to several Blue Devil 3-pointers.

DHS has a break for the holidays before returning to the court Jan. 2 at the Oak Ridge Tournament.

DHS wrestling

Two Blue Devil wrestlers went undefeated in the JV portion of the Lou Bronzan Invitational last weekend at Liberty High in Brentwood.

Capturing gold medals for DHS were Charles Stephenson (4-0) at 120 pounds and Bailey Murray (5-0) at super heavyweight.

In addition, Devil Jacob Fields went 4-2 to take second place in his division, and three locals — sophomore James Locker at 115, 10th-grader Quinn Davies at 145 and freshman Ismael Perez at 200 — finished third.
