The athletic program that has produced three NCAA D-I team captains in the past three years has had a big week. That’s right, sports fans, the Cavs were firing on all cylinders.
Heights Basketball: The Varsity Cavs followed up on Tuesday’s win against Trinity with a huge victory over Wilson on Wednesday night, with senior Joe Kelly hitting the game winning shot in the final seconds of the game. Wilson was 6-2 coming into the game, with wins over Sidwell and Friendship Collegiate. Heights freshman Kyle De Pollar nailed a couple of critical shots late in the game and sophomore Isaiah Grigsby put 16 point on the board. The future is looking good.
Here’s a shot of the game-winning three:
Heights Wrestling: The wrestling team won two home matches against Massanutten and the Model School, the second one by a very close margin.
Heights Swimming: Our Cavs topped Bullis on Thursday, 91-61, winning first place in 9 of 12 events. John Paul Royals took first in 4 events; Robert McHale and Griffin Kim both took first in 3.

Excellence in all things. GO CAVS!
