August 21, 2010

West Point High School's football game at Columbus high, scheduled for Sept. 3, has been canceled according to Steve Montgomery, Superintendent of West Point schools.

Raiders set for home match against Heritage

Last season, the Heritage Academy Patriots looked quite intimidating out of the gates. However, down the stretch, the team experienced nine straight losses to negate a 3-0 start.
The Oak Hill Academy Raiders are going to try to make it 10 consecutive loses on Friday night, and they will be trying to avenge an opening week loss to Heritage in 2009.
That loss was 47-14, and it set the tone for an 0-4 start for the Raiders.
The Patriots are going to be attempting a winning start, with a pretty formidable roster, which sports a little under 30 players.
