The Lady Raiders are coming off two wins at the Immanuel Christmas Tournament and currently holding a 16-3 record.
One of the three losses came against the Lady Patriots of Marshall Academy on December 1. Oak Hill squandered a four point halftime lead and let one slip away as Marshall Academy defeated the Lady Raiders 53-51.
The Lady Raiders will get a second chance Saturday, January 5, as Oak Hill makes the trip to Holly Springs to take on Marshall Academy. It should be another tight game, and the Lady Raiders will hope to be up for the challenge.
The Oak Hill Raiders will go into Saturdayâ€™s contest against Marshall Academy a little battered, but not broken.
Oak Hill and Marshall Academy met earlier this season; the Raiders had a very difficult time figuring out the Patriots and lost 51-29. Oak Hill never trailed by less than 15 after the first quarter and will hope to erase this past game in their memory.
The Raiders are currently coming off a barn-burning win over Winona Christian School 60-56 at the Immanuel Christmas Tournament in Columbus.
Weâ€™ve all been there. Lack of money, lack of transportation and lack of time to get everything done that we need to get done. And all these things are understandable contributors to why some General Education Diploma (GED) participants donâ€™t fully complete the GED program they enter as a first step to landing a better job.
No one really fancies the idea of boiling their tap water, especially if that means boiling the water for six or seven days. But for safety reasons, boiling water is the very step residents must take if theyâ€™re water supply has been affected by underground construction, a malfunction of the check valve or any other factor that may contaminate the water.
Folks living in the country can tell you itâ€™s a strain driving 15 miles into town just to enjoy a hot, home-cooked meal that you donâ€™t have to prepare yourself. But the residents living in the western part of Clay County donâ€™t have to worry about that any longer thanks to the opening of Phebaâ€™s Diner, which offers a vast variety of down home breakfast and lunch meals in a warm, comfortable atmosphere.

There has never been a shortage of news in West Point and Clay County in the past.
2012, however, proved to distinguish itself as far as newsworthy stories are concerned.
This year was truly a banner year for this community, as we saw the West Point/Clay County Growth Alliance forge a partnership with the Columbus/Lowndes Development LINK in the Spring, which by September had inspired leaders in Clay, Lowndes and Oktibbeha Counties to drive toward an economic partnership that would encompass the entire Golden Triangle region.

It was the final game for the Lady Wave in the Immanuel Christmas Tournament as West Point took on a very tough Heritage Academy. It was the third game in a three day span that maybe left the Lady Wave with little in the gas tank.
West Point was held to only one Qiayon Bailey basket during the first quarter and failed to ever return into contention with the Lady Patriots. Heritage Academy went on to have full control of the contest and never let the Lady Wave ever get close. The Lady Patriots defeated West Point 44-33.
