It had been a long time coming for Greenbrier West. The Cavaliers found themselves back in the state tournament after a 27 year gap. They faced Trinity Christian in a Class A quarterfinal on Wednesday night.
The Warriors’ Joel Robertson started the scoring, but West answered back. The Cavaliers took a 27-21 into the break. They led by nine points heading into the fourth, but that’s when Trinity kicked it into gear. The Warriors outscored Greenbrier West 23-10 in the final frame to grab a 52-48 victory.
Kaiden Pack finished with 15 points and seven rebounds, while Noah Midkiff chipped in 14 points as well.
“Like I said, these guys worked very hard,” co-head coach Joey Fitzwater said. “We got these two coming back with some other young players. Our game will change, but like I said, you finish 21-5, that’s a nice season.”
“We just know we’ve got to work harder,” Pack said. “Hopefully we’ll be back here next year.”
