Westview added Gibson County to its growing list of beaten teams in District 13AA.
The Chargers posted a 53-42 win in girls’ play, winning at GC’s gym for the first time since the 2006-07 season, and the Westview boys completed the sweep with a 67-43 triumph.
Meanwhile, the same McKenzie team that ended Dresden’s unbeaten season last week did it again to another unbeaten Weakley County team on Monday.
This time, it was Greenfield.
McKenzie’s boys beat Greenfield 52-46 in a non-district matchup and gave the Yellowjackets their first loss of the season through 10 games.
In other boys’ action across the county, Dresden lost its second game straight game at the hands of Bradford 79-57 and Gleason fell back another notch after losing to Huntingdon 66-50.
In girls’ action, Gleason lost its first District 13A game of the season 40-30 to Huntingdon. Greenfield picked up a 52-19 non-district win over McKenzie and Dresden got past Bradford 50-43 in a non-district contest.
Greenfield will be at Westview tonight for a cross-county matchup. Westview will be having a Pink Out night in support of Terry Frazier, the wife of Weakley Schools Superintendant Randy Frazer. She has been undergoing treatment for breast cancer and a check will be presented to her during halftime of the boys’ game. All are encouraged to come out to the game wearing pink in support.
Westview 53, GC 42
Wins against the Lady Pioneers at Gibson County have not come easy for the Lady Chargers over the years, so it was a sweet victory when Westview broke its losing streak at the GC gym.
The Lady Chargers ended the game on a 10-point run to finish off the Lady Pioneers and remain undefeated in District 13AA with a 7-0 and 11-1 overall.
Tiffany Rechis scored a game-high 18 points and got the game-ending 10-point run started on her third 3-pointer of the game. Rechis hit her fourth trey moments later after Kaley Leyhue hit a 3-pointer.
That was the second run of double-digit points in the second half for the Lady Chargers. Westview had an 11-point run in the third period.
Teddy Vincent scored 12 points in the win, and Jasmine Howard scored 10.
H’don 40, Gleason 30

Briana Jones got the game-high in points with 13 on 6-of-20 shooting. Jaclyn Montgomery was next in points for Gleason with five.
The Lady Bulldogs only shot 28 percent from the field and shot just two free throws as the Fillies were only called for six fouls.

McKenzie 52, G’field 46
If any unbeaten teams in the area have to face McKenzie, they better be prepared. Greenfield found that out on Monday.
The Yellowjackets became the second undefeated team within a week to lose to the Rebels. McKenzie knocked off Dresden last week.
Tony Robinson scored 10 points in the first period, but he went cold the rest of the game with only six points over the final three periods. He still led the ’Jackets in scoring with 16.
Hunter Crouse tried to take up the slack by scoring 10 of his 13 points in the second half, but an 18-10 fourth period by the Rebels proved to be too much. Trevor Willis scored a game-high 24 for the Rebels.
Westview 67, GC 43
