In a season that has been dogged by postponements and cancelations on the heels of the COVID-19 virus, the Appomattox Raiders boys varsity basketball program has only been able to squeeze in three games thus far. 

The Raiders currently have a 1-2 record after losing their lastest contest on Jan. 19 at Nelson County by a narrow margin of 34-32. 

Jordan Scott carried the Raiders with a solid all-around performance, scoring 16 points (including 4 of 8 from three-point range), grabbing 10 rebounds, and recording 5 steals and 4 blocked shots. 

Others on the score sheet for Appomattox were Conner Scruggs (9), Jaron Revely (3) and Ervis Davin and Tre Lawing (2). 

Jaren Purvis topped Nelson County Governors’ scorers with 13 points. 

On the same night, the JV Raiders defeated the JV Governors by a wide margin at 56-24, led by Jeremiah Harris’s 20 points. 

Ten JV Raiders entered the scoring column, with Alex Caruso, Grayson Peterson and Trey Shrock adding 7 each, followed by Zach Busa and Regan Conroy (4), Kyle Davis (3), Conner Ramsey (2) and Tre Kelso and Gabe Nitti (1). 

The Raiders Varsity and JV games against Altavista tonight have been canceled. The varsity game previously scheduled for Friday against Gretna has also been canceled. 

Up next for the Raiders is a home game against William Campbell on Monday.
