Lady Cubs romp Choctaws

LELAND— The Leland Lady Cubs handled the West Tally Lady Choctaws easily Friday 63-28 in high school basketball action. In a game that was decided very early, the Leland High School girls basketball team poured it on a little more in the second half.

Total teamwork

Moments after his team had defeated visiting Kirk 58-42 Friday night, Washington School boys basketball coach David Rounsavall looked at the scorebook pleased.

The scores next to each his key players were well distributed, meaning his belief that his players played unselfishly was validated.

Great brothers

Deer Creek School’s Tommy and Hunter Sims have such a great connection that many times when they are on the basketball court neither of them needs to say a word.

A simple gesture or facial expression let’s the other know where to go.

Tommy, a senior, is the Deer Creek point guard. Hunter, a junior, is the Deer Creek center.

Calm and collected

HOLLANDALE — The Simmons High School boys basketball team was not intimidated by visiting Ray Brooks Tuesday night. They knew deep down that if they played their game the Blue Devils would have a chance to knock off the powerful Tigers who came into Hollandale with an awesome 20-2 record.

Get Your Kicks!

Most coaches would be happy with their team for going on the road and picking up a tie against a longtime rival, but Washington School boys soccer coach Jeffrey Giachelli said he was not happy after his team’s 2-2 tie against Bayou Academy on Tuesday.
