The West Point Lady Green Wave (15-3; 2-1) are still fighting for that top spot atop the district after falling to the Oxford Lady Chargers last Friday night.
The Lady Wave began their rebound from that tough loss at home with a road win over the Lady Trojans of New Hope High School on Tuesday night.
West Point had a battle on its hands, but the girls managed to outlast New Hope in the 66-61 victory.
In the first period, the girls, led by Kelsei Ewings in scoring, jumped out to a slim 16-12 lead over the Lady Trojans.

The West Point Green Wave (9-9; 2-1) basketball team was riding high after defeating the Oxford Chargers last Friday night at home. That district win made the team 2-0 at the time in league play.
On Tuesday night, however, the Green Wave had to travel to face the Trojans of New Hope. West Point forced an overtime quarter, but it was New Hope that eventually pulled out the 69-68 win over the Green Wave.
The Green Wave had a nine-point advantage at the half, but they allowed two dozen points to New Hope in the third period.

The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (10-13; 3-3) have been playing a tough stretch of late. Wrapping up district play last Friday against Manchester, the boys started a series that includes four games in this week.
After falling to Starkville on the road on Saturday, the Raiders returned to the court on Monday night to take on the Hebron Christian Eagles. In that non-district match, the Raiders tipped in the winning shot in the final second of the game for one-point win.

Hollivay leads Heritage girls to 40-38 OT win over Oak Hill Tuesday night

A couple of weeks ago, the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders traveled to Heritage Academy and held the 6-foot-3, and heavily recruited, Rachel Hollivay to just 10 points. In the first two periods of Tuesday night’s rematch at Oak Hill, it looked like it was going to be another one of those nights for Hollivay.
The Lady Patriot came to life, however, in the second half of the game. It took all of regulation and one overtime period, but Heritage eventually outlasted the Lady Raiders 40-38.
