Make it two district wins for the Oak Hill Academy Raiders hoops team. Friday night’s 69-65 battle with Carroll marked the first division victory on the court for the Raiders, as Winston forfeited two weeks ago.
Oak Hill was coming off a pair of losses, including a district defeat to Manchester last week. The boys played a very intense Friday night match, holding off the Rebels through multiple rallies.
“We really wanted it tonight,” said Oak Hill head coach Brian Middleton. “I’m extremely proud.”

It mattered not who the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders (12-5; 3-0) put in Friday night’s district game against Carroll Academy. It was going to work.
Whether it was Paige Dawkins’ 10-point first quarter, Tori Ellis’ run in the second and third or the girls coming off the bench in the fourth, there was not stopping Oak Hill, which won the game 68-22.
“We have the ability to ware people down,” said Oak Hill head coach Stan Hughey, whose team has won eight straight. “I’m really proud of that bunch. They gave us a really good effort.”

Things might have started out slow for the West Point Lady Green Wave basketball team on Friday night, but thanks to senior Kelsei Ewings, West Point was able to overcome any early adversity to win their first district match against Saltillo 60-55.
Ewings would eventually end up with a season-high 29 points on the night.
Offensively, though, West Point got off to a bit of a slow start, scoring just seven points in the first quarter of play. They finished the quarter down 11-7.
