Posted by Press Release on March 4, 2015 at 4:39 am under High School, Photos | Comments are off for this article


–Northwest Guilford ran out of gas versus a very solid West Charlotte team down the stretch as the Lions were able to put together a 12-0 run during the first 3½ minutes of the 3rd quarter on their way to a 79-62 victory in the Sectional Finals of the state 4-A playoffs. The Vikings were unable to keep up the pace after an impressive 1st half that ended with a 2 point Northwest lead going into the half. Playing at a break-neck pace for 3 games in 4 nights ultimately did the Vikings in as West Charlotte applied their own version of pressure and created easy opportunities for themselves.
–The Vikings were led by Jaylen Gore who finished with 13 points, 5 assists, & 4 rebounds. Sam Covington contributed 13 points while Jalen Spicer had 9 points. Tre Turner had 8 points to go along with 8 rebounds and Reggie Davis had 7 points and 9 rebounds.
–I. Blackman led the Lions with 25 points while S. Carter added 19 points for West Charlotte.

–The Vikings’ season comes to an end in the “Sweet Sixteen” of the state 4-A playoffs with a 23-4 overall record. A special “THANK YOU” goes to the 3 seniors on the team (Zack Braswell, Sam Covington,
and Kevin Henry) who will each be greatly missed for their contributions to the team.

Congratulations to the entire team for a GREAT season and a most entertaining brand of basketball that was a product of the hard work and dedication of every member on the team.
