The West Point Green Wave and Lady Wave will play host in an important rivalry game tonight against Starkville High School. The Lady Jackets will get things started against the girls of West Point at 6 p.m.
The boys will follow with their game immediately following that action.
After a tough loss to regional rival Starkville Academy a week ago, the Lady Raiders responded in a big way Tuesday night in a 50-28 throttling of rival Heritage Academy. Oak Hill used staunch defensive and balanced scoring to dismantle the Lady Patriots on their home floor.
In a gritty, defensive road battle, Brian Middletonâ€™s young squad showed their toughness to answer the call of fierce rival Heritage Academy in a 44-34 rematch win. The Raiders overcame poor shooting and the Patriotâ€™s physicality on defense and responded by punching them right back in the mouth by turning the second half into a free-thow fest.
As almost everybody knows in the Southeast and around the country, Alabama and Georgia will square-off in Atlanta for the SEC crown and a national championship berth Saturday night. Since the game has been declared a national semi-final by the media, everybody watching will have their eyes locked on the television set for all four quarters. But before you get up at halftime for a break, you might want to stay in your seat as Anna Trundle, a current junior at Mississippi State, has a chance to throw footballs into a Dr. Pepper Can for $100,000 in scholarship money.
