McDowell High School’s two junior varsity basketball teams concluded their home schedule Tuesday afternoon with a pair of easy victories against Alexander Central.

In junior varsity girls’ action, McDowell scored the first 12 points of the game and used that start to easily glide past the Lady Cougars Jayvees 49-24.

A total of eight Lady Titans scored in the game with freshman Peyton Koone leading the charge with 11 points off the bench.

Three of McDowell’s starters also provided a solid all-around effort. Makenna Parkins (5 rebounds, 3 assists), Naliyah Boyce (5 rebounds) and Daisy Rice (3 rebounds, 2 assists) finished with eight points apiece. 

Katie Baker (4 rebounds, 3 assists) finished with four points and Tayla Wood, Makiya Burgess and Madi Smith (4 rebounds) scored two points apiece in the victory.

In a fashion similar to that of the girls’ contest, the McDowell Titans junior varsity basketball team set the tone from the start, getting out to a big lead en route to a 49-32 victory against the Alexander Central Cougars.

Dequan Boyce (3 rebounds) finished with eight points. Tyler Rector netted seven points off the bench.

Trent Lewis (6 rebounds) and Gavin Davis scored six points each. Colby Effler had five points.
