Itâ€™s not a tournament, but for the Oak Hill basketball program, itâ€™s sure going to feel like one before the weekend is over. The Oak Hill hoops squads will be completing a three-day stretch of games tonight and tomorrow.
After playing Calhoun Academy last night, Oak Hill will play a district match against Carroll tonight, and they will make up Tuesday nightâ€™s games with Winston tomorrow.

There is still time to get kids signed up for the cityâ€™s youth basketball league, but time is running out fast.
Tomorrow will be the final day kids can be added.

With the hard economic times still upon most, and Christmas just past, Parks Director James Crowley said that they took the measure to alleviate some of that pressure.
