The two games postponed by weather last Saturday and Monday have both been rescheduled for the Chillicothe Girls Basketball team.
The Lady Cavs will host Warren Monday February 11th in their final home game of the season and then travel to Nelsonville-York on Wednesday February 13th.
The Chillicothe Lady Cavaliers added another victory to their win column in beating East Clinton 44-26, Wednesday. It was senior night, where Kayla Keener was recognized for her involvement in Lady Cavs basketball.
Chillicothe started the game with a 5-0 run and never trailed, forcing 35 East Clinton turnovers; however, the favor was returned as Chillicothe committed 34 turnovers.
Despite this, Coach Shawn Blue was happy with the win and said his team played hard, attributing high emotions and a long break since the last game in the Lady Cavs' miscues.
From the field, Chillicothe was 16/53 for 30% and 9/17 from the charity stripe.
The (5-12) East Clinton Astros shot 9/37 for 37% from the field and 8/15 from the foul line.
Chillicothe's Bri Dawes led all scorers with 18 points.

Chillicothe was a 36-35 winner over Whetstone in the season opener, but have never played Orange.
The tournament draw for the Girls’ Basketball post season will be held Sunday afternoon. The Lady Cavs are 2-6 in SEAOL play and 5-13 on the season with four regualr season games remaining.

CIRCLEVILLE 44, CAVS 32:
Number-1 seeded Circleville jumped out to a 28-0 lead on Chillicothe and held on for a 44-27 victory in their Round 2 Dual State Meet Wednesday.
Chillicothe match winners included Jacob Price (138), Jacob Johansen (145), Christian Collins (160), Trevan Bond-Pennington (195), Tyler Kelley (220) and Tyler Howard (285).
Coach Mike Peck said Price’s win in the 138 class was over a state alternate from 2012. “The match came down to the 3rd period, with Price taking over and getting the takedowns to secure the win.”
Chillicothe was wrestling without a few normal starters out of the lineup and bumped kids around to cover all the weight classes.
Peck added “Wrestling up to 220 pound and giving up 35 pounds (to do so), Tyler Kelley came up with the 7-4 victory. Tyler is a true team captain\leader and always puts the team first by wrestling any where he is needed.”
The Cavs plan to bounce back this weekend at the 21 team Athens John Deon Invitational.
“This should be a good test gearing up for league and sectionals” said Peck.
IRONTON 51, CAVS 32:
The Lady Cavs got the opening basket of the game, but then went cold as Ironton earned a 51-32 victory over their former SEOAL foe.
Chillicothe fell behind 12-3 after the 1st quarter and Coach Shawn Blue said the girls simply couldn’t catch up. “Our shooting was about as cold as the weather last night. We just could buy a basket in the first quarter… the first half.”
The Cavs trailed 25-9 at the half.
“We defended pretty well and got lots of stops, but just couldn’t put the ball in the hole” said Blue.
Jasmine Jordan grabbed a game-high 14 rebounds for Chillicothe.
The Cavs (5-12) will host Warren Saturday and will have four more games over the next seven days. After Warren, Chillicothe heads to Nelsonville-York Monday, hosts East Clinton Wednesday and travels to Gallia Academy next Saturday (2/9).
Chillicothe will play in the GIrls Division 1 tournament in the 42 team Central District this season. The tournament draw is this Sunday afternoon.
The Chillicothe Bowling Teams were winners over Zane Trace Tuesday night at Shawnee Lanes.
The Boys (8-5) took the Pioneers 2403-2279. Jarrad Zeisler led Chillicothe with a 461 series and Robbie Vest rolled a 437. Josh Harrington and Barry Allen paced Zane Trace with 425 and 424 respectively.
The Chillicothe Girls (9-4) finished 59 pins ahead of Zane Trace 1665-1606. Summer Finley led the Cavaliers with a 385 series. Jessica Hamm had ZT’s top score with a 292.
Chillicothe faces Huntington Thursday at Shawnee Lanes at 4pm.
Chillicothe had to deal with a much bigger lineup at Bishop Hartley Monday night.
Coach Shawn Blue said his team didn't have an answer for the Hawks' big front line with several girls taller than six-feet.
Blue said the Cavs had a chance to tie the game late, but couldn't win the inside game.
Jenna Holton paced the Cavaliers with 14 points, Bri Dawes had 10 and Shanayia Lett added 9. Jasmine Jordan had 7 rebounds despite being undersized against Hartley.
Chillicothe (5-13) travels to Ironton Thursday night for a 7:00pm tip-off.
Chillicothe Girls Basketball improved to 5-12 with a 61-45 victory over Portsmouth at Hatton Gym Saturday night.
Coach Shawn Blue finally had a reason to smile after the game. “The kids have worked extremely hard here the last couple of weeks and haven’t found the gold at the end of the rainbow, finally they got one tonight.”
The win snaps a five game losing skid for the Cavs and gives them a split with the Trojans. Chillicothe lost 54-42 at Portsmouth in December.
The Cavs trailed 10-7 after the first period. Portsmouth went on an 8-0 run to overcome a 7-4 deficit and surged ahead by five. Chillicothe regained the lead on a combination of buckets by Jasmine Jordan, Jenna Holton and Kayla Keener to lead 19-15 at the break.
“We didn’t shoot real well in the first half, but got the ball inside the way we wanted… the first half we kind of struggled offensively, but overall a good effort.”
The big difference was shots on goal. Chillicothe held the Trojans to 11% from the field in the third quarter while the Cavs began to separate themselves in the second half.
Bri Dawes, scoreless through the first two periods, got into the act offensively hitting for seven of her 15 points in the third. Dawes drained a three to put the Cavs on top 32-19 for their largest lead to that point.
Blue was most pleased with the second half. “They (Portsmouth) kinda regrouped and we didn’t have a great half… offensively, I thought this was the best game we’ve had in transition in quite some time.”
Both teams had 18 free throws apiece.
Four Cavaliers scored in double figures for Chillicothe led by Holton’s 17 points. Dawes had 15, Keener 13, Jordan 12 and Shay Lett capped the scoring with 5.
Portsmouth’s Peighton Williams had 27 to lead all scorers and Jada Jenkins added 10.
Chillicothe heads to Hartley Monday night.
SWIMMING: BOYS 1st AT RIO GRANDE, GIRLS 2nd
Chillicothe’s combined scores gave them a meet victory in the pool at the University of Rio Grande Saturday.
The Cavalier Boys finished ahead of River Valley and Point Pleasant and the Lady Cavs were 2nd behind Gallia Academy and in front of River Valley and Point Pleasant respectively.
Both the Chillicothe Boys and Girls won five events and placed second in four others.
The Cavs swim against Teays Valley next Saturday at 1pm at the Ross County YMCA.

WRESTLING: Cavs Finish 8th of 18 at Miami Trace
Chillicothe placed 8th in the 18 team Miami Trace McDonald’s Invitational Wrestling Saturday.

The Cavs finished 14 points behind 7th place Circleville, the team Chillicothe faces in the second round of the State Dual Meets this Wednesday.
Coach Mike Peck was pleased with his team’s effort. “Of the 11 (Cavalier) wrestlers to attend, all won at least one match, which is a solid accomplishment in this tournament.” Chillicothe was 17th in the 2012 Miami Trace Invite.
Last week, Peck quoted assistant coach Adam Steele saying the Miami Trace tournament is a good measuring stick for knowing where the Cavs stood against future opponents.
Chillicothe also finished ahead of SEOAL members Warren and Gallia Academy, who they’ll meet in two weeks in the league meet at CHS.
Christian Collins (160) had the top finish for Chillicothe (2nd). Caleb Price (132) and Mike Williams (220) had 4th place finishes while Nick Lawhorn (106), Jacob Price (138) and Tyler Kelley (195) grabbed 6th places.
