Ringing in New
The Hawks and Lady Hawks hosted a close rival on the first evening of the new year. The H.W. Byers Lady Lions and Lions ended up splitting the pair of games on Saturday night.
The Lady Hawks were showing toughness in their attack during the first quarter. After all, they were no longer a winless enterprise. Their victory over Ingomar in the Myrtle Tournament had to give them a much-needed boost in morale. They were taking care of the ball much better and creating decent looks. They trailed by six after one, 12-6.

But the part of the season that really matters still awaits.
The Lady Patriots went 1-2 in the tourney and the Patriots 1-1.
