The Forestview Jaguars boys team opened up the season at home with an 81-37 victory over visiting East Gaston. Opening the season up with a win was not the only big thing that happened on the night. Jaguar Senior Guard Logan Botts, who just signed with Newberry earlier in the day, surpassed 1,000 points in his career. He needed 42 points to reach that milestone. He amassed 43. With just over two minutes to go in the game, he hit the three-pointer that put him over 1,000. He also broke his own single-game record with the 43 points he had. His previous high was 42 points last year.
The game was never in doubt as Forestview led 42-17 at half-time. Forestview will travel to take on Bessemer City, Thursday. East Gaston will travel to North Gaston, Friday.
