Last week started out very well for the Hebron Christian Eagles, who defeated the Central Academy Vikings to begin the 2011 district tournament at Central.
That win guaranteed the Eagles a spot at today’s Central State Tournament in Winona. The boys returned to the court on Friday night to play the next round, only to fall to Kemper for the second time this season.
After the loss to the Rams, however, the Eagles rebounded with a district tournament finale win over Winona Christian, by a 53-38 score.

An unexpected winter storm formed over the state this week, causing a number of athletic postponements on Thursday night.
Hebron’s two basketball teams were victims of this storm, seeing their district tournament games at Macon canceled due to Thursday ice and snow on the road.
The boys were scheduled to play Kemper Academy at 5 p.m., and the girls were slated to take on Calhoun Academy during the 7 o’clock match. Calhoun defeated Winona to play in the game against a Hebron girls club that had a bye early in the week.

The last time West Point was supposed to go to Oxford for a district doubleheader, a January 11 winter storm hit Mississippi, postponing the games.
The makeup date? It was supposed to have been last night, but another “rare” winter storm threatened most of the state and forced cancellations and postponements, including the games in question.
This afternoon, the two teams will try and end the division play once and for all, when West Point travels to take on the Chargers, starting at 3 p.m.

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.

With the district tournament looming just a couple of days away, the Oak Hill girls fell to Kirk 51-36.
