Sophomore Shines in Win over Bruins


Christian Gardner , Sports Editor

On Jan. 19 the Bulldogs beat the Forest Park Bruins 46 – 39. The Bulldogs were led by sophomore standout Jack Dolan. Dolan led the team with 17 points and connecting from beyond the three point arc four times. Senior Marcus Stephens was a clear leader on defense with four blocks getting the Dawg Pound on their feet.

Dolan has received an increase in his role from last year. According to Maxprepps, Dolan averaged one point per game last year. Since he has become a starter, he has improved his scoring to 9.5 points per game. This was Dolan’s first game back from being out with a concussion, and during his time away from play, he worked on his shot. His play was evident that his work payed off. Dolan said he just “found a rhythm tonight” and that he “wanted to do whatever [he] could to help the team win.”

Dolan wanted to emphasize how it was a team win. “Just glad we had a lot of help off the bench and that everyone was able to contribute,” said Dolan.

After a successful night, it’s right back to the gym for Dolan. “Going back to the shooting coach tomorrow to keep this up.” Hylton’s boys basketball team will suit up again on Jan. 23 at Freedom High School.
