Alex Haight scored a game-high 23 points as the Delhi boys downed visiting Charlotte Valley, 67-35.

The Bulldogs balanced attack—in which all 11 players scored—jumped out to a 23-5 lead in the first quarter and led 37-17 at halftime.

“We played a pretty solid game overall,” Delhi’s Head Coach Warren Kelly said. “Our defense could’ve looked a little crisper, but I think overall we did a pretty solid job in most facets of the game.”

Josh Baxter made three three-pointers and scored 13 points for Delhi while teammate Luke Branigan added ten.

“It was just a great feeling to try to do something that felt normal because these kids have been dying to play sports for a long time,” Kelly said.

“The kids were very excited and so were the coaches, it’s just been a long-time coming and we were very proud to be able to represent our school again,” he added.

Dylan Waid paced Charlotte Valley with 18 points and teammate Matt Vroman scored seven.
