Byers takes two from Cardinals
The H.W. Byers Lions and Lady Lions got clean sweeps over one of their county rivals last Friday evening and bid an early farewell to some teammates and classmates who will be leaving at the end of the school year.
The opening period on “Senior Night” was one fraught with turnovers for the visiting Potts Camp Lady Cardinals. Byers had set the tempo early and it was one with plenty of motion in the offense. The Lady Lions wasted no opportunities. They had few misses no matter where the shots originated. Such accuracy left the Lady Lions 17 points ahead (27-10) at the buzzer.
Holly High boys fall to Trojans, beat Independence, Ruleville
By CLAUDE VINSON
The Holly Springs Hawks and Lady Hawks had to run the gauntlet last week to play some make-up games in their district schedule.
The Lady Hawks met the East Side Lady Trojans on January 25. The East Side bunch was 16-3 overall and 6-1 in district. Both squads looked pretty good except for ball control. Neither was shooting wildly. The shots were calculated but just weren’t falling. With a little three-ball help from Shakerra Dawkins and Rachel Selman, Holly High managed to lead by one at 10-9. Both had a total of 14 turnovers between them.
