  • WILLIAMSTOWN – The Board of Education.
    Ravenswood’s Runnin’ Red Devils were educated on the boards Tuesday night in Williamstown.
    The host Yellowjackets held a commanding, 42-21, edge in the rebounding department and the end result was a 72-57 victory in a pivotal Little Kanawha Conference North Division contest.
    The loss sent Ravenswood to 6-3 on the season while Williamstown upped its record to 7-3.
    Not only did Williamstown have a huge advantage on the boards, but also at the free throw line. Williamstown hit 17-of-24 attempts while the Devils made just nine trips to the stripe, knocking down five of those.
    The Devils opened the first eight minutes of the game with the lead at 19-17. The Yellowjackets then seized the momentum in the second quarter by outscoring Ravenswood, 17-8. Williamstown also outscored Ravenswood in the third, 17-16, and in the finale, 21-14.
    Heath Burgess was Ravenswood leading scorer with 17 points, nailing 8-of-10 shots from the field. Jake Martin was also in double figures with 16.
    Riley Heatherington added nine points, Logan Tuttle had eight, Dylan Radabaugh four and Dalton Gandee added three.
    Williamstown had three players in double figures, including Landon Travis, who had a game-high 22. Chandler Weber finished with 20 and Gage Ewing delivered 16. Brad Alisha had eight and Hunter Neely six.
    Gandee, Heatherington and Martin each had a 3-pointer for Ravenswood. The Devils were 24-of-49 from the field and 3-of-7 behind the arc.
    Martin was the team’s top rebounder with eight. Burgess and Martin each had three steals. Burgess and Ryhs Jelich both handed out four assists.
    Ravenswood must have a short memory as it steps outside of the LKC to play at Herbert Hoover Thursday evening. In the junior varsity contest, Williamstown defeated Ravenswood by a final of 51-40. Travis Rawson had 13 points for Ravenswood, Logan Jarrett scored 12, Hayden Mandrake finished with nine and Jon Crow scored six.
