Lady Kavs have 2-2 week
Kenston Forest School’s varsity girls basketball team enters this week with a 3-5 overall record for the 2019-20 season after going 2-2 last week.
The Lady Kavs bookended their Thanksgiving break with games against Isle of Wight Academy. The Lady Chargers won 31-17 at home Nov. 22 and then prevailed 52- 35 on the road Monday, Dec. 2
“They played well,” Kenston Forest Head Coach Brittni Jones said of her players. “We just couldn’t get any shots to fall.”
On Dec. 2, Gracie Gunn led the Lady Kavs with 10 points, and Hanna Mahaney had seven points.
On Tuesday, Dec. 3, Kenston Forest fell 56- 21 to visiting Central Virginia Home School, which featured a roster of imposing players.
“These girls were huge,” Jones said. “We were definitely outsized. We’re a big team, but I’m talking about height and body size.”
Rhain Mills and Kieren McHugh led the Lady Kavs with five points apiece.
The coach said her players are also currently at a disadvantage due to the lack of practice opportunities, which they will be able to catch up on soon.
On Wednesday, Dec. 4, the Lady Kavaliers routed visiting Fuqua School 57-29.
“The (score) probably would have been a lot higher, but we did a running clock the last quarter,” Jones said.
Gracie Gunn scored 15 points, Molly Epperson had 13 and Shelby Gunn had 12.
On Friday, Dec. 6, the Lady Kavs, playing without starting point guard Mya Mahaney due to a previous commitment, defeated host Tidewater Academy 42-40, winning on a clutch three-pointer from Taylor Maione.
Kenston Forest visits Richmond Christian School on Thursday, Dec. 12, with the tipoff set for 5:30 p.m.
