After playing Calhoun Academy last night, Oak Hill will play a district match against Carroll tonight, and they will make up Tuesday night’s games with Winston tomorrow.

Tomorrow will be the final day kids can be added.
The Parks and Recreation Department extended the deadline, which was originally December 30, giving locals more time to sign up.
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.

Youth hoops deadline looms

January 12, 2011

By Bryan Davis
Sports Editor
Due to the Christmas Holidays and the harsh economic times, the city took steps last month to try and give parents a little more time to get their kids involved in the city’s youth basketball league that will start next month.
The original sign-up deadline, slated for December 30, was moved back to January 15.
That means that Saturday will be the final day to sign kids up for participation in the league.
The season was originally scheduled to start on Monday, but that date will likely be pushed back as well.

The Hebron Christian Lady Eagles were among many Mississippi basketball teams that were not able to improve on their district records earlier this week.
With a heavy winter storm’s snow and ice still on the roads on Monday and Tuesday, the Lady Eagles missed bouts with Winona and Calhoun.
On Thursday night, however, the girls should have any trouble getting down to Macon to take on another district rival in Central Academy.
The Hebron girls have already played and defeated the Lady Vikings once this season, back on December 2.
