Posted: Wednesday, February 8, 2012 12:00 pm
The Westview boys’ stock rose over the weekend. Most everyone else saw a drop.
The Chargers knocked off Gibson County 76-53 on Friday, while Westview’s girls fell 52-46 at GC.
Gleason, meanwhile, suffered losses on both Friday and Monday. The Bulldogs were swept by Huntingdon on Friday with a 52-45 girls’ loss and 61-47 boys’ setback and were then knocked off at home by South Fulton Monday with a 40-35 overtime decision in girls’ play and a 73-21 outcome in the boys’ game.

Calay Smith hit a 3-pointer with eight seconds remaining in regulation, and then the Lady Bulldogs scored the first two points in the extra period.
Gleason would not score again, however, as the Red Devilettes ran off the game’s final seven points.
SF played without leading rebounder Kalon Martin, who was out sick, but Taleeah Cross had 15 points and 12 rebounds. Cross is now just five points shy of 1,000 for her career.
