The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (9-13; 3-3) finished up the district play on Friday night with a hard-fought performance against Manchester that resulted in an unfortunate loss for the Raiders. On Saturday, Oak Hill’s boys returned to the court against Starkville, falling again in the non-district game, 63-44.
