September 23, 2011

Oak Hill Academy is still searching for their first win on the year.
But as the weeks continue, the opponents won’t get any easier, including Canton Academy.
The 2-3 Panthers have had an inconsistent season. After starting 0-2, they got their first victory over Hillcrest and went toe-to-toe with Winston Academy, arguably the toughest team in the district.
“They gave Winston a run for their money,” Raiders head coach Benjie Merchant said. “Athlete wise they’re like Manchester and they play hard.”
