Tritonâ€™s Clay Yeo put up a combined 61 points to set the programâ€™s all-time scoring record at the Trojansâ€™ home Class A regional Saturday. This is the third time Yeo has earned the Athlete of the Week award this season after setting new single-season and game scoring records for the team.
Plymouth sophomore Nicky Davis led the Lady Pilgrims in the all around with a 13th-place overall finish at the Valparaiso Gymnastics Regional Saturday. It was Davisâ€™ second trip to the meet after advancing individually as a freshman.
BOURBON â€” Clay Yeo got the record, but the Trojans fell short of a repeat regional championship.
Yeoâ€™s driving layup from the lane with 1:22 left in regulation secured him Tritonâ€™s all-time scoring record, but when Davis Rao buried a 3 from the wing on the other end, the announcement was drown out by the Canterbury fans.
Raoâ€™s triple sparked an 8-0 run as Kai Foday knocked down a big one-and-one with 28 seconds on the clock to knot the game up at 48-all and force overtime, and the 6-3 forward followed up with an overtime-opening trey of his own to put the Cavaliers up 51-48.
