In a game that Hebron Christianâ€™s greatest lead was 35 at one point, the Eagles looked as if they had not skipped a beat after a two week break from competitive play. The last Varsity game the Eagles played was a thrashing win over Grace Christian of Louisville on November 13.
It all came down to the final minute of play between Hebron Christian and Victory Christian in Pheba Tuesday night. A Subrina Oswalt go-ahead basket with only seven seconds left seemed to clinch the Lady Eagle win, but Victory Christian had other plans in mind. Victory, after a timeout, inbounded the ball from their baseline, drove down the court, and hit a 25 foot shot as the game clock expired to defeat Hebron 40-39.

Wade Hamby finally got to play football for the West Point Parks and Recreation PeeWee league last year.

Now at age 6, heâ€™s going through pre-operational procedures that would make most adults cringe.
