The Randolph Junior Varsity Boys' Basketball team ended a 3 game stretch with a 2-1 record and a tournament title.  The lone loss came to Crofton at home.  The Cards jumped out to a 14-4 first quarter lead only to see Crofton outscore the locals 16-8 in the final period to take a 29-25 victory.

Merrix Denn was high scorer for the Cardinals with 8 points.  Carter Schnoor and Cade Linville each scored 6. Keaton Backhaus had 3, and John Munter got in the scoring column with 2 points on the night.

Saturday morning saw Randolph get an early start to their day, playing the Creighton 2 team in an 8:30 contest.  The Cards jumped all over the visiting Bulldogs, outscoring the visitors 22-6 in the first quarter.  Cade Linville hit 3, 3 point shots in the second quarter, to lead Randolph to a 33-14 halftime lead.  Randolph stayed hot in the second half, pulling away to a comfortable 54-21 victory.

Merrix Denn led all scorers in the first round contest with 21 points. Keaton Backhaus got into double figures with 13 points. Carter Schnoor and Cade Linville each had 9, and Sam Lemmons had 2 points to round out the scoring.

The championship game found Randolph pitted against the other team in the tournament from Creighton.  Randolph was not able to start as fast as they did in the first round, and found themselves down 20-17 at halftime.  The Cardinals came out hot in the third quarter to outscore the Bulldogs 12-2 and take a 7 point lead going into the final period.  Creighton fought until the end, but Randolph made a season high 13 of 13 freethrows to take the contest and the championship 42-31.

Merrix Denn again led the way with 20 points.  Carter Schnoor had 10, Cade Linville 5, Keaton Backhaus 3, and Avery Bermel and John Munter each had 2 for the victorious Cardinals.
