Roane County 77,

Calhoun County 38

SPENCER — Devin Heeter followed up his 47-point outburst against Doddridge County Thursday night with a 30-point effort in the Raiders’ 77-38 win over Calhoun County Saturday afternoon.

Heeter nailed 13 shots from the field, including four from downtown, but shot no free throws. A.J. McGinnis (15 points) and Brandon Morris (10) joined their teammate in double figures.

The visiting Red Devils were paced by Trevor Carder’s 19 markers.

Calhoun kept things reasonable close heading into the locker room only down 12. However, their hosts outpointed them 24-7 in the third and ripped the game wide open.

A stingy defense helped the Raiders (6-2) cause in the second half. Calhoun (1-5) was held to single-digit points totals in the final two periods.

Roane County has a big test Wednesday when they travel to LKC opponent Braxton County for a 7:30 p.m. start. Calhoun County welcomes in Webster County for a 7:30 p.m. start Tuesday.

Warren 61,

Cambridge 22

CAMBRIDGE — Warren pitched a shutout in the first quarter, outscoring host Cambridge 13-0 en route to a 61-22 victory Saturday night.

The Warriors (7-3) got 13 points from Jared Hall, 10 from Josh Huffman, nine from Troy Huck and seven from Noah Nichols. Huffman also had eight rebounds.

Cambridge (3-8) was led by Connor Aleshire’s eight markers.

GIRLS BASKETBALL

Ravenswood 47,

St. Marys 43

ST. MARYS — Blue Devils’ head coach Howard Meeks sounded like his team had just let one get away in a 47-43 loss to Ravenswood Saturday night.

It is easy enough to understand after St. Marys (2-5) shot just 13 of 29 from the free throw line on the evening in a very winnable game.

Cara Williams’ Ravenswood squad, who have a road matchup with Williamstown at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, also did their part to give away the game with a 3 of 15 performance from the charity stripe.

Meeks’ bunch had the lead after one period of play, 15-14, but their visitors kicked up the defensive intensity over the next two quarters. Williams’ team allowed their hosts just 5 points in the second stanza and seven in the third period.

Meanwhile, her offense scored 14 and 9 points in the same 16 minutes. Then they withstood a late comeback attempt as St. Marys outscored them 16-10 in the final 8 minutes.

Ali Westenhaver paced the victors with 13 points. She was joined in double-digits by Annie Hunt’s dozen markers.

Addie Furr and Kylie Wright both hit double-digits scoring totals for the Blue Devils, who aren’t back in the action until a 7:30 p.m. road trip Friday to Paden City. Furr collected 15 points and Wright tallied a baker’s dozen.

Marietta 60, Dover 58

DOVER — Adi Hill’s game-winning layup with 2.8 seconds left lifted Marietta to a 60-58 victory at Dover Saturday.

The Tigers got 17 points from Hannah Kroft and 15 from Tia Jarvis in the victory. Morgan Altenburger added eight, Jessica Smith tallied seven and Caleigh Doan netted six.

The Tornadoes got a game-high 20 points from Samantha Blair and 18 more from Jordyn Kiser, but it wasn’t enough.

SWIMMING

PHS wins the Patriot Invite

PARKERSBURG — Terry Nicewarner’s PHS swim team won just about everything you could during Parkersburg South’s Patriot Invitational Saturday at the city’s Boys and Girls Club.

Big Red swimmers took both the boys and girls titles as well as 18 of the 22 event victories in the pool.

David Snider, Jaden Welsh, and Olivia Collett each won or had a hand in taking four events.

Snider won the 200 Free and 100 Backstroke, before teaming up with Brady Colvin, Aden Azinger and AJ Vann in the 200 Medley then swapping Azinger for Jakeb Bertram in the 400 Free Relay.

No one came close to touching Snider in his two individual events. He finished 14 seconds ahead of Parkersburg South’s Reece Fletcher in the backstroke, and 20 seconds ahead of Fletcher’s younger brother Oliver in the 200.

Colvin nearly equaled his teammate in wins. He finished with three golds on the day after he captured the 100 Butterfly and 500 Freestyle along with his relay win.

Welsh, meanwhile, captured solo wins in the 500 and 200 Free. She beat Parkersburg South’s Makayla Burns in both events.

Collett took the 100 Free and the 200 IM along with her relay wins.

Kate Snider and Grace Cox also added three event wins during the meet.

Parkersburg South captured everything else. Dominic Collins tallied three event wins with great performance in the 50 and 100 Free, and swam his leg of the 200 Free Relay well.

McDuff McGuire continued his impressive freshman campaign with an 11-second win over Bertram in the 200 IM.

Only three teams showed up to the event in PHS, South and Robert C. Byrd because of the weather.
