Season Ending Playoff Loss to Blythewood HS

The Cavaliers hit the road for State playoff round one and faced the Blythwood Bengals, the number one seed.  The Cavaliers jumped out to a 15-9 lead and led by one at the half....... but the Bengals turned it up in the 4th quarter to outscore the Cavaliers 15-2 to win 42-33.

The Cavaliers season closes with a 11-12 record.

Dorman was hit very hard with graduation last year......added to those loses, outstanding guard/forward Colin Hill left early to attend Stanford.   Many times throughout the season, Dorman played an 8th, 9th, 10th, and two 11th graders either starting or getting the majority of minutes which translates to - wait until next year BIGTIME!     Not making any excuses "just saying."

Coach Ryan and staff - great job!

Come Back Win for Boys - Girls dominate!

 Both the Lady Cavaliers and boys defeated the JL Mann Patriots!

The Ladies won, 63-23 while the boys make it more interesting, coming from 10 down to win their game 49-43 on ice-eve! 

Once again, great job by our coaches in controlling the tempo as Dorman's vastly undersized team measured up defensively in a well played team win.  The Cavaliers held JL Mann to 15 second half ponts (GREAT D) while scoring 32 of their own to win by 6! Great win for the Cavaliers.

 In the ladies game...with the exception of the first 3 minutes - it was a Dorman controlled win.  All players got considerable playing time in their 40 point win.

Team Effort - Team Win over Visiting Byrnes

Both the Ladies and Men's basketball teams notched Region II AAAA wins over visiting No. 1 ranked, Byrnes tongiht before a great Friday night crowd.  

In the men's game, Tyson McClain led the Cavaliers with 11 points and critical "end-of-game" free throws,   The Cavaliers played a  controlled offensive game slowing the tempo, not forcing shots, moving the ball for both "good outside looks" and open players underneath.   Perfecto.   The Cavs were vastly undersized but defensively, fought and clawed for rebounds.  Great coaching job - did I say, great coaching job!  Final score, Dorman 49 - Byrnes 46!
