Lexington boys, girls stay out front in region basketball races

The Lexington basketball teams stayed atop the region standings and completed a sweep over their rivals on Tuesday.

The Wildcat girls defeated River Bluff, 48-32, while the boys defeated the Gators, 61-43.

With the win, Lexington girls moved to 5-1 in Region 4-5A and lead Dutch Fork by a half-game in the standings. The two teams play in the regular-season finale on Feb. 9.

Lindsay Garner led Lexington with 16 points.

On the boys’ side, Lexington used a strong third quarter to overcome a halftime deficit to defeat River Bluff for the third time this season. The Wildcats trailed 22-19 at halftime but outscored the Gators, 20-9 in the third quarter.

Junior Cam Scott led the Wildcats with 23 points and Kaleb Evans had 14. Lexington is 6-0 in the region and can clinch the championship on Friday against White Knoll.

Mitchell returns to the court for Gray Collegiate

Gray Collegiate senior Mychael Mitchell returned to action Tuesday against Columbia. It was his first game since suffering a seizure late in the game against Keenan on Jan. 17.

The senior finished with four points in the 68-33 win.

Mitchel took an elbow to the head with 15.9 seconds left against the Raiders. After landing on the floor, his body began to convulse. Athletic trainers rushed to his aide on the floor and helped Mitchell regain consciousness.

Mitchell was taken to the hospital and released the next day. He returned to practice last week and was cleared to play Tuesday.

Mitchell went through senior night festivities with his family. He also was joined by the Gray Collegiate athletic training staff. The school honored the training staff with a special award for their quick response.
