Logan Miller and Matt Kelly combined for 36 points and 10 rebounds Saturday to lead the Highland Hawks over the Seton boys basketball team, 58-42, at home in Warrenton.

Highland (12-7 overall, 7-3 Delaney Athletic Conference) took a 13-11 lead by the end of the first quarter and a 24-20 lead at halftime. The Hawks then went on a 20-11 run in the third quarter and finished the game on a 14-11 run.

“We got on our guys at halftime due to a slow start and Seton controlling the ball the first half,” Hawks coach Jake Shechtman said. “We made some adjustments, attacked their zone a little different, but really it was the guys who increased their determination on the defensive end that made all the difference.”

Miller finished with 19 points, five rebounds and two steals, while Kelly had 17 points, five rebounds and three steals. Seth Kott added seven points and two steals, while Nicky Sim had six points and five rebounds. Rahji Johnson had seven steals, three assists and three rebounds.

Fauquier, Liberty at 4A North Region swimming

The Fauquier Falcons medaled in four events and set a pair of school records Saturday during the Class 4A North Region swim meet at George Mason University.

“Some great swims,” Falcons coach Bob Blashill said.

Fauquier finished 11th in the girls standings with 74 points and 15th in the boys standings with 53, while the Liberty boys placed 18th with 35 and the Liberty girls did not score. Dominion won the girls competition with 289 points and the Heritage boys won with 269.

Katy Joyce led the Falcons with a runner-up finish in the 100-yard freestyle, finishing in 56.97 seconds. She entered the event as the No. 5 seed. Joyce also improved on her No. 8 seed in the 50 free, placing fifth in 25.72.

Jake Boulter set a Fauquier record in the 50 free with a time of 22.36 seconds, which gave him a third-place finish. Boulter also placed fourth in the 100 butterfly (56.23) and set a school record with his leg of the 400 free relay (50.58). That relay team finished eighth with Sam Henson, Colin Cummins and William Ursey (3:44.17).

For Liberty, Chuck Crum placed eighth in the 500 free (5:15.43).

Highland at VISAA state swim meet

Reni Moshos continued to diversify her gold metal collection from the VISAA Division II state swim meet Saturday.

The Highland sophomore won the 100-meter breaststroke with a time of 1 minute, 5.17 seconds. Last season, she won the state 100 backstroke and, as an eighth grader, she won the 100 freestyle.

On Saturday, Moshos also placed second in the 200 individual medley to account for all 37 of the Highland girls’ points. The Hawks finished third in the girls standings, while Hampton Roads won with 227 points and Seton took second with 76. Fork Union won the boys championship with 267 points and Highland did not score.

Moshos actually set a state record in the 200 IM during the preliminaries Friday, finishing first in 2:03.80, but then Maderia’s Kylie Jordan broke Moshos’ record in the finals Saturday. Jordan won the finals in 2:01.19, while Moshos took second in 2:02.83.

Moshos’ mark in the 200 IM was also an all-American qualifying time.
