DORTON ALEXANDER, No. 5, dishes off the basketball for Richmond during a June 14 junior varsity shootout meeting with Excelsior Springs at Excelsior Springs High School.

EXCELSIOR SPRINGS – A summer shootout game might have given Richmond’s varsity boys basketball team a needed boost in preparing for the 2019-20 season.

On June 14, the Spartans faced Excelsior Springs at Excelsior Springs High School to open a shootout that also included Platte County. Bolting out to a double-digit lead, they went on to lead 35-13 at halftime and won 66-34.

Guards Dionte Marquez and Layne Cavanah agreed the Spartans’ energy level against Excelsior Springs was better than it had been the previous day during a shootout at St. Joseph Benton High School.
