Monday night was a battle between two district winners. Some of the best girls in single-A ball took to the court against some of the best in AAA hoops, and both teams were from right here in Clay County.
The Hebron Christian Lady Eagles (22-3; 10-0) and the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders (19-6; 6-0) both wrapped up their respective districts this weekend, with the two teams going undefeated in league play.

Last Friday night, Zach Bryanâ€™s technical foul late in Oak Hillâ€™s last district game at Manchester, might have been the difference in his teamâ€™s three-point loss to the Mavericks. On Monday night, the senior took a shot at redemption, tipping in the winning two-point shot at the buzzer for a 47-46 Raider win over the Hebron Christian Eagles.
As a team, Oak Hill struggled the final three quarters of the game to redeem themselves from a start that was nothing short of dismal against the visiting Eagles.
