Sarah Dill was like a notary. Every moment of the game seemed to have the junior’s seal of approval on it.
Dill scored 27 points, pulled down six rebounds and made two blocks, and the Oak Hill Lady Raiders dispatched the Tri-County Lady Rebels, 46-32, in a District 2-AA game Thursday at Oak Hill Academy in West Point.
“We all knew it was a big game, and we needed to play good,” Dill said. “The first quarter really helped because it gave us confidence to keep pressing. It was a little tough at the end, but we still came out with the win.”

The ball might start rolling in the right direction for the Oak Hill Raiders.
After losing three consecutive games and falling below the 500-mark following 11 games, the light at the end of the tunnel might be getting brighter for Oak Hill if the wins continue accumulating.
“We were playing desperate during that three-game losing streak,” Oak Hill senior Drake Riley said. “We practiced harder, put more focus into it, but overall we just played better. I think we are now finding our stride with our best basketball.”

HOUSTON – Ecurb Forest might not have been 100 percent, but the game’s spectators in the stands might not have realized it.
Forest, who’s battling a sore throat caused by tonsillitis, scored a game-high 19 points, catapulting West Point to an easy 64-47 victory over the Houston Hilltoppers Tuesday night at Houston High School.
“Ecurb was able to get into a rhythm knocking down 3-pointers,” West Point Head Coach Brad Cox said. “His teammates set him up with good looks, and once he got going they did a great job getting him the ball.”
