The gym at Grace St. Luke's was standing room only. Both girls and boys teams from the Saints were playing for the Shelby County Seventh and Eighth Grade Combo League Championship. They were well coached and determined as they headed into the final game to take the title from the Lynx.
Lausanne was led into the girls' game by captains Kolby Cohen '23 and Lucy Fisher '23, who had held the team together all season. It was their fourth time to face the Saints, and while they had managed to win in the previous matchups, the Lynx knew it would be a tough game. MacKenly Randolph '24 scored 20 points and had 15 rebounds, earning the title of MVP of the tournament. Tyler Jones '25 made 7 points, while Jinnda Kane '24 added 6 more to the effort. At the final buzzer, the Lady Lynx were victorious, winning 38-33.
The Lausanne boys faced an impressive GSL team for the third time, with the Saints winning the last two games between the rivals. In fact, the Saints hadn't lost in their last 21 games. But the Lynx were focused and had learned from the previous times on the court with GSL. Kylon Jones '24 led the charge with 29 points, followed by 16 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists from Trey Davis '24. Drew Scott '23 also gave the Lynx 10 points and 10 rebounds. With a final score of 64-55, Lausanne took the win and with it the championship.
Congratulations to these teams on their fantastic seasons. We're so proud of both of these amazing athletes for their determination and perseverance! #letsgolynx
