Led by 19 points on 8-of-12 shooting from senior guard Lucas Knorr, four Bay (10-7, 4-0) players scored in double figures and nine of the 11 players who entered the game got on the scoresheet.

By Josh Levine

Even after jumping out to a 16-0 lead with a barrage of four three-pointers, Leadership High School’s boys basketball team only managed to squeak past International with a 48-45 road win on Friday.

The Jaguars (0-2) had a chance to tie the game in the final moments, when Alex Seutin hoisted up a three-point attempt over Leadership forward T.J. Smith. Seutin’s shot bounced off the rim and off another Leadership player, giving International one final chance with 2 seconds left. Seutin took a second attempt from the corner, but shot failed to fall as time expired.

Boys Soccer: Leon strikes in overtime to send Drew to BCL Central title game 

By Matthew Snyder

Drew School head boys soccer coach Daniel Philpot needed a few moments to collect himself before his post-game interview on Tuesday.

Given what he’d just witnessed, you couldn’t really blame him.

Drew junior forward Richard Leon scored two all-important goals – the first just minutes before the end of regulation to force overtime, the other in the second period of sudden-death overtime – to power the Dragons to a 2-1 victory over Bay School in the Bay Counties League Central semifinals at the Crocker Amazon Soccer Fields.

Boys Soccer: Drew breaks through against Leadership in second half

The Drew School boys soccer team’s offensive strategy against Leadership on Thursday was pretty obvious.

With Leadership’s back line aggressively playing up near midfield, the Dragons found success with long balls to speedy forward Richard Leon, but the junior struggled to get the ball in the net.

After five breakaway opportunities that fell short, Leon finally connected in the 45th minute of the Dragons’ 2-0 Bay Counties League Central win at the Crocker Amazon Soccer Fields.

By Jeremy Balan

Our All-City teams are not always scientific.

Sometimes, you have to go with your gut.

In the past, our Player of the Year race in baseball has been between those who have had standout seasons at the plate and on the mound — the dual-threat players that impact every game.

This time around, it’s a pitcher, but the exception is truly exceptional.

All you have to do is ask one question: Who was the best baseball player in the City this season? The answer is Collin Monsour.
