November 10, 2012

In a low scoring 48-40 victory, Oak Hill was the beneficiary of double digit performances by J.J. Bridges and John Wesley Williamson. Bridges and Williamson scored 15 and 10 points, respectively, while grabbing five rebounds a piece.

Lady Raiders fend off fourth-ranked Kirk Academy

November 10, 2012

Oak Hill solidified themselves as a team to beat this year in the MAIS Class AA after defending their home court against Kirk in a gritty 62-53 win Thursday night. The balanced Lady Raiders overcame foul trouble and an early deficit to knock off a pre-season top five team for the second time in their first four games. Coach Stan Hughey’s squad stuck with their identity of fast paced offense and full court pressure to build a comfortable lead midway through the game, but when the game got tight, Oak Hill adjusted and responded to Kirk’s rally by rebounding exceptionally well.
