The boys led the way for Cleveland athletics this fall; winning Two Rivers Conference championships in cross country, football and soccer.
The Cleveland boys soccer team won the Two Rivers 3A Conferece this season with an 18-4-1 record. Lawson Lamm, named MVP, was perhaps the biggest piece of the puzzle as the senior had a dazzling campaign that included 16 goals and 20 assists. Garrett Lee anchored a defense that allowed only 16 goals all season and only a handful in conference play and received the Coaches Award.
The football team advanced to the third round of the playoffs. Patrick Jesequel, the Rams’ top receiver who had over 1,000 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns, was named Offensive MVP. Quarterback Caiden Norman won the Best Skill Player award as he accounted for 4,445 yards of offense. Quinton Ross was honored as the Defensive MVP.
The boys country team also took home a conference title on the strength of MVP runner Gable Dersham and Coaches Award recipient Wyatt Dersham. Gable came in second place in the conference championships and his twin brother was right behind him in third place. Both runners were state qualifiers.
Never miss a local story.
Jessica and Jasmine Cullins similarly led the girls cross country team. Both were state qualifiers after impressive performances at the 3A East regional where Jessica Cullins (MVP) came in ninth place while Jasmine Cullins (Coaches Award) finished in 11th.
Alexis Ivey was named MVP of the 22-win volleyball team. Ivey led the team in kills (175) and total blocks (73). Fellow senior middle hitter Mallory Macon earned the Coaches Award as Macon totaled 120 kills for the season.
Senior Madison Foulke was named MVP for the tennis team, which finished third in the conference. Fellow senior Bailee Holloman was recognized with the Coaches Award.
Megan Long was a regional qualifier for the Rams and named MVP for the golf team.
