The Fort Chiswell girls basketball team took a home-and-home series with James River, winning in Springwood on Saturday, 51-19, then topping the Knights in Fort Chiswell Monday, 54-14.
River got off to a rough start Saturday as the visiting Pioneers scored the first 26 points of the game before the Knights settled down. Lexi McCullough led River with eight points and Lacey Kessler hit two threes for six.
On Monday the Knights got off to a better start, but struggled after that in the loss. Ripley Barry had 10 rebounds in that game, Kessler had six points and Rachel Crowder had five.
Monday’s game will be the last in a while for the Knights, who will quarantine for 14 days because a player from Radford tested positive after the Bobcats played the Knights last week.
“We won’t be able to do anything until January 30, and we didn’t find out until last night (Monday) after the game,” said coach E.D. Schechterly. “We have two games to play after the team is back and, as of this time, we don’t know if we will be playing those games. It’s a wait-and-see thing.”
