The JV Boys traveled to Carolina Forest Tuesday looking to beat the only team they had played all season that they had not beat. The game started slowly, but the Panthers went on a run to end the first quarter and took a 13-6 lead into the second. The Sharks rebounded well in the 2nd and closed the gap to 24-20 at the half. The 3rd quarter was dominated by the Panthers and their clutch shooting. The deficit was too much to overcome for the Sharks as the Panthers hit free throw after free throw to close out the game 47-39. Dillon Haire led the Sharks with 19 points, 11 rebounds, and 2 steals. Chandler Smithart added 6 points, Justin Bailey and Joey Parisi both added 4 points, and Dylan Murphy, Michael Cunia, and Marcus Hawkins-Alston all chipped in 2 points. After losing all but 3 players from the previous year, the JV Sharks overachieved this season. They finished 11-7 on the season and 6-4 in the region, which was good enough for a 3rd place finish!
