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.

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.
