Boys basketball

Williamsburg Christian Academy is tied for No. 1 with North Cross in the latest Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association Division III boys basketball state poll.

The Eagles (16-6) are led by junior Cle'Von Greene, who is averaging 27.2 points per game. WCA has three others in the top 15 in scoring in the Metro Conference: DaShawn Cook (15.1 ppg), Chester Makoi (11.8 ppg) and RaShawn Cook (9.7 ppg).


Lafayette offensive lineman Dexter Klock will play for the University of Wyoming football team as a recruited walk-on, Rams coach Andy Linn said on Monday. Linn added that Rams defensive linemen Tyler Jump, who had already committed to throw the discus at Virginia Military Institute, will play for the Keydets football team as well.

That means that Lafayette could end the recruiting period with four Division I signees. Wide receiver Hezekiah Grimsley is set to sign on Wednesday with Virginia Tech, while running back Caleb Kraegenbrink will decide between several Division I offers, including one from Army.

Rams linebacker Tristen Packer committed this weekend to play for Division II Wingate. Several other Lafayette seniors are expected to play on the D-II or D-III level.

Grimsley, Kraegenbrink and Klock were first team Group 4A all-state selections for the 13-1 Rams in 2016, as was linebacker Liam Walters. Linn said that Klock, a 6-foot-4, 265-pound offensive tackle, has a sister attending Wyoming and that the family also has a house in the state.
