This week in basketball, the 8th grade boys and girls team kicked the week off at home against Dawkins. The 8th grade team took on a tough Dawkins squad, however, they were led to another victory by Kadan Roach and Landyn James. As for the girls team, they lost on Monday night, 30-25 to hand them their third loss of the season.
While we were hosting Dawkins, the 7th grade boys traveled to Gable and came back with a huge win against the bucks.
On Thursday, the seventh grade squad traveled to Fairforest where they fell to the hornets by two points. However, back in the Cougars Den, the cougars faced Carver Middle. After a blowout win for the girls team, the boys struggled to find any rhythm on the offensive end. Though in a thriller, the 8th grade boys escaped the night still undefeated winning 36 to 35. The 8th graders were led by Rashard Wright and seventh grader, Kayzzin McDowell.
