Westview had the easiest night as the Lady Chargers whipped Milan 64-7 and then the boys rolled to a 72-45 verdict.
Dresden notched a pair of wins over nearby rival McKenzie with a 60-22 rout in girls’ play and a 53-45 overtime verdict in boys’ action, outscoring the Rebels 8-0 in the extra period.
Greenfield honored Haley Rawls in style with a sweep of Bradford at the Yellowjackets’ gymnasium, 38-31 in girls’ play and 65-52 in the boys’ game
Gleason split with Big Sandy, winning 51-48 in the girls’ game but then falling 56-45 in the boys’ nightcap (see related story).
