Arts & Sciences Advances In Region 3-A

Friday, February 21, 2014
The Arts & Sciences girls' basketball team advanced to the Region 3-A semifinals with a 59-35 first-round victory over Richard Hardy on Friday night at CSAS. 

The District 5-A champions jumped out to a 16-5 lead at the end of the first quarter against the fourth-seeded team from District 6-A.  At halftime, CSAS held a 26-13 advantage, and took a 38-24 lead into the final period. 

Sarah McElvain led the Lady Patriots with 25 points, while Brooke Mitchell followed with 14 and Keturah Billen added 12. 

Arts & Sciences, now 16-13, advances to meet the winner of Friday's game between Whitwell and Boyd-Buchanan in Monday's semifinal. District 5-A runner-up Silverdale Baptist also advanced to the other semifinal with a 45-26 win over Lookout Valley. The Lady Seahawks will meet Van Buren County, which defeated Grace Academy 76-41 on Friday. 

"It's always good to survive and advance," Lady Patriots coach Zach Dragoo said. "Richard Hardy played really hard, and it was a good test for us with the raised stakes of an elimination game. Monday is the big one, so we are just going to work hard and get ready for either Whitwell or Boyd."

In other 3-A games, Whitwell ended Boyd-Buchanan's season with a 54-37 win.  Van Buren beat Grace 76-41 and Silverdale beat Lookout Valley 45-26.

Signal Mountain Should Be Problem Solvers Around The City

Re: Roy Exum’s “Stay, Signal Mountain, Stay”  Well this article is something to think about. I think the split could go either way, and Signal Mountain schools would still flourish, as they have done for the past several years. What I'm worried about is why Signal Mountain has not yet had the guts to go be problem solvers at Howard, or Tyner, or Central. Why do ... (click for more)
