Hawks win one, lose two in tourney
By CLAUDE VINSON
The teams from Holly High traveled to Coldwater last weekend for a tournament hosted by the Cougars. The Hawks went 1-2 and the Lady Hawks 0-1.
They were scheduled against Tunica’s Rosa Fort on Thursday.
The Lady Lions of Rosa Fort were seven-point winners over the Lady Hawks. Holly High was right up there with the competition in the first quarter, giving the Lady Lions a one-digit edge at 17-16.
That would be the most productive stanza for the Lady Hawks. Rosa Fort outscored them in the three successive quarters to win at 42-35.
Katina Cowan led Holly High (1-2) with 12 points.
The Hawks’ game was similar to the Lady Hawks’ contest. All quarters were close and low scoring; however, Holly High came out on top. The Hawks’ most productive quarter was the second. They outscored Rosa Fort 15-8 in that one. They went on to win 39-36.
Daniel Burton led the Hawks with 13.
The Hawks were back on the floor on Friday night in a contest with the Cougars. The Cougars had shocked the Hawks in Holly High’s season opener on November 2.
Coldwater held the Hawks to single digits in the first frame, but Holly High bounced back to best the Cougars in the second quarter 15-13. However, the Cougars still had a one-point lead at 23-22.
The low scoring continued in the third and fourth quarters with the Hawks going out 11-10 in the third but dropping back to 10-15 in the fouth. The final score was 48-43, in favor of Coldwater.
Jeremy Jeffries led Holly High with 18. Burton was next with 11 and Justin LeSueur shot for 10.
Saturday night in the Coldwater Tournament, the Class 3A Hawks led 5A Gulfport much of the way before falling 54-51.
The Holly High boys were up 31-23 at the half. Gulfport outscored the Hawks 21-10 in the fourth to steal the “W.”
LeSueur and Jeffries were the top guns for Holly Springs (2-3), scoring 16 and 10, respectively.
Holly High played an away game at Booker T. Washington on Tuesday. They go to 5A neighbor Olive Branch on Thursday before breaking for Thanksgiving.
