Head Coach Stan Hughey and his Lady Raiders kicked off the New Years with a great victory in Holly Springs against a tough Marshall Academy Saturday. The Oak Hill girls were successful in their attempt to grasp a win in the rematch against Marshall 57-38.
Now the attention has turned to district competition as the end of the regular season is looming for every team in the state. The Lady Raiders will begin their final stretch of district games with a road trip south to the “City of Lights” to take on Canton Academy. This Friday night contest will be the first match up between Oak Hill and Canton in the 2012-2013 season.
A less than 24 hour turnaround and Leake Academy awaits the Lady Raiders on Saturday here in West Point. Oak Hill will hope to make up for the 60-39 loss to the Lady Rebels back in December. This game could possibly be a preview for the District 2-AA championship game in February.
With a strong 3-1 district record, the Lady Raiders can control their destiny for the rest of the season with two wins this weekend.
