Season Ends


More Wow! 

The Lady Cavaliers lost the "upper hand" in the 3rd quarter and were completely unable to recoer it's 1st half momentum -  losing to the Lady Eagles (Greenwood SC) 74-65.

Cudoes to Jasmine Rogers and Khalia Webb (playing with an ankle sprain) for scoring 17 points apiece.

Congratulations to Coach V Whiteside and her coaching staff on their awesome year!   To the seniors - we are going to miss you next year - to the returning team - State awaits!

The Dynamic Duo Acconts for 52 Points In Win over Spring Valley

2014 Ken Kaiser Whoops It Up
DHS Principal Ken Kaiser - Knows how to celebrate!

The Dynamic Due (Taylor and Khalia) scored a combined 52 points in the Cavalier Quarter-Final win over Spring Valley (22-2).   Final Score, Dorman 66, Spring Valley 47.....and the bench got plenty of playing time, partially due to injuries combined with a 19 point lead going into the 4th quart.   That's right, Taylor Petty and Khalia Webb (29 points and 23 respectively) outscored SV by themeselves.   Tayler had 7, 3's for the night.

Spring Valley came into the game with a 22-2 record and made things interesting early on.  The Cavs jumped out to a lead but SV hung around until the second half when the Cavs grew a 20 plus point lead and held serve. 

The Lady Cavaliers will advance to the Upper State Championship on Friday night at 7:00 pm at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena (formally Bi-Lo Center).  Advance tickets will be sold in the Dorman High School athletic department on Friday from 8:00 am until 2:00 pm.  Tickets are $10.00 each. 

Folks this is huge - these ladies need every breathing Dorman fan to join them on Friday - there is nothing like frenzied fans outcheering the other side.  

To view pictures from tonight, click on "Cavalier Galleries" then select the "Basketball" section for the links.  I will be putting video highlighs from the last three games up in the next few days as well.  

Great job Cavs and Coaches.

Cavalier Boys Season Ends - Ladies Advance

The Lady Cavs battled a very good Westside Rams team tonight but mangaed to distance itself offensively in the second half and advance to play in Round II vs Spring Valley (Columbia) next Tuesday at 7:00 pm.  The game will be played at Dorman.  The Cavs were led offensively by Taylor Petty (20 points) and Khalia Webb (14 points) - Dorman 64, Westside 52.  

Pictures from tonight along with video will be uploaded to Cavaliers Galleries in the "Basketball" section.


The Boys game was just to bloody close - all night long - Although the Cavs carried a small lead going into the half, missed shots underneath and open three's  prooved to be critical missed opportunities against a very good Hillcrest team.   The Cavs lose, 52-49

Pictures from tonight along with video will be uploaded to Cavaliers Galleries in the "Basketball" section. 

Congratulations on your Region Championship and great year!

Whew! Glad This Is Finally Over!

The Dorman ladies hosted the Lady Yellowjackets from Fort Mill in Round One of the AAAA State Playoffs winning their game 80-14.   Regardless of what the score says, the Lady Cavs had a hard time getting the ball to fall early on from both inside and the perimeter.  Tough defense just ruled the night....transition buckets and agressive D are a sweet combinition - add a deep bench and rested players and life for the Lady Cavaliers just couldn't get much better.  The Lady Cavaliers were led offensivelly by senior Khaila Webb (16 points) and Logan Hollis and Taylor Petty who both added 10 point a piece.  To view video highlights, click on Dorman vs Gaffney.

The girls will host Westside (Lady Rams) this Saturday at 6:00 pm in Round Two!   Make sure you come out to see these ladies play - they are big, fast, athletic, and well coached!  


The boys game was much closer - the Cavs finally got the upper-hand early in the game but the margin of "upper hand" changed between 4 and 8 points until the 4th quarter.   The Cavs sealed the deal with clutch free throws and transition buckets to advance to Round Two on Saturday at 7:30pm.   The boys were led offensively by Quantes Brown and Carlos Dotson (18 points apiece) and JJ Arcega Whiteside and Collin Hill (11 points each) Final Score 68-51.  The Cavs will host the Hillcrest Rams who beat Spartanburg in Round One 71-49. 


I will put puttting pictures up of this well as the girls game at Cavalier Galleries in the "Basketball" Section.

D E F E N S E - Dorman Host Gaffney

A Stamding room only crowd came to see Dorman host Gaffney in the regular season finale, "senior night"

The ladies got  things started  - a little slow at first - but soon kicked both their solid defense and offense in gear to cruise to a 75 to 35 win.  The Lady Cavs were paced by Khalia Webb (20 points) and Logan Hollis (10 ponts) - but scoring was spread over the bench as all Cavaliers got mucho minutes.  The ladies end the year undefeated in Region II AAAA


The boys game was a defensive best for the Cavaliers - limiting the Indians to outside shots throughout most of the game.  I know the Cavs had locked up the Region II AAAA Championship but this game was by no means a day of rest - this was going to be a game movitiated by PRIDE!   The Cavs were led offensively by  JJ Arcega Whiteside (23 points) and Quantez Brown (18 points).   The Cavs finish the regular season 13-1 in Region II AAAA and 20-4 overall.
