Monday night was a battle between two district winners. Some of the best girls in single-A ball took to the court against some of the best in AAA hoops, and both teams were from right here in Clay County.
The Hebron Christian Lady Eagles (22-3; 10-0) and the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders (19-6; 6-0) both wrapped up their respective districts this weekend, with the two teams going undefeated in league play.

Last Friday night, Zach Bryan’s technical foul late in Oak Hill’s last district game at Manchester, might have been the difference in his team’s three-point loss to the Mavericks. On Monday night, the senior took a shot at redemption, tipping in the winning two-point shot at the buzzer for a 47-46 Raider win over the Hebron Christian Eagles.
As a team, Oak Hill struggled the final three quarters of the game to redeem themselves from a start that was nothing short of dismal against the visiting Eagles.

On Friday night, the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders finished off Manchester Academy for the second time this season to complete a perfect 6-0 record in district play this season. Starting on Saturday, the girls began a string of non-district games they are hoping will get them ready for the upcoming district tournament at Winston Academy.
The first of these non-league games resulted in a 55-45 loss to the Starkville Academy Lady Volunteers. Starkville has accounted for two of Oak Hill’s seven losses this season.

After winning 13 games in a row, the girls took a tough loss to the Lady Chargers of Oxford High School in the team’s second district game of the season.
Tonight, the Lady Wave will try to get things back on track in another important district game, on the road, against the Lady Trojans of New Hope High School.

After falling in three consecutive games, with the defense giving up a ton of points, the West Point squad shocked the Oxford Chargers on Friday night with a dominating win.
Tonight, the Green Wave will try to improve on a 2-0 district record, when they travel to New Hope to take on the Trojans, who are hovering right around the .500 mark themselves.

The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (9-13; 3-3) finished up the district play on Friday night with a hard-fought performance against Manchester that resulted in an unfortunate loss for the Raiders. On Saturday, Oak Hill’s boys returned to the court against Starkville, falling again in the non-district game, 63-44.
The Raiders have guaranteed themselves the No. 2 seed at the district tournament, which will be at Winston. With the Starkville game and three home matches this week, the boys should have plenty of live-action under their belts before the tourney.

On Tuesday night, the West Point Green Wave (9-8; 2-0) came out flat against a fast Starkville High School basketball team. They fell behind early and could not make up ground before losing the non-district game.
On Friday, the Green Wave returned to the court, with a lot more on the line. Facing an Oxford team with a 2-0 district record, West Point could not afford to fall behind early.
They did just the opposite, dominating the Chargers in a 69-60 home victory.

The streak would not be extended and the Lady Wave experienced their first district loss of the season, falling to a tough Oxford team 72-57.
