In Sunday’s edition of the Daily Times Leader, the Oak Hill Academy girls recap from Lamar ran in place of the boys’ story.

In the season’s final home game, against Lamar, the Oak Hill Academy Raiders spread the offense around just right, completing a 42-40 win over the visitors.
Lamar jumped out to an 8-7 lead after one and continued its lead after two, going into the half with a 21-17 lead.
In the second half, however, the Oak Hill boys’ defense stepped it up, allowing just five points to the Lamar boys, while scoring 14 in the third period.

After playing three home games last week, the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raider (21-8; 6-0) had one last contest to play. This time they would hit the road to play the Kirk Academy Lady Raiders in Grenada.
With the district tournament looming just a couple of days away, the Oak Hill girls fell to Kirk 51-36.
“We went in there on their senior night, and they were really intense,” said head coach Stan Hughey. “We were not able to match that kind of intensity. You can’t get down like that to a good team. We’ve got a lot of work to do before Friday.”

The West Point Green Wave (10-9; 3-1) basketball team will be back on the home court again tonight.
A week ago, the Green Wave traveled to New Hope, to face off against the district rival Trojans. West Point barely fell in overtime to New Hope, giving the Wave its first district loss of the season.
Tonight, they will be looking to make it two in a row, and a 4-1 district record when the Trojans come in for a rematch.
In last week’s game, the Green Wave led several times throughout the match, but they could not hold on.
