Warner Robins honors seniors; local results

Baldwin spoiled a bit of Warner Robins’ Senior Night Tuesday. That was via the Lady Braves’ 63-56 win over the girls – keeping it from a being a perfect night for the likes of seniors Nyasia Hill, Emma Harper, Zaida Carson, Diamond Ellison, Nikerria Simmons and Jordan Thomas.

The loss – the second time the Demonettes have fallen to the Milledgeville squad (previously it was 65-54 back on Dec. 14, 2018) – put Warner Robins at 12-8. Baldwin improved to 16-5.

Results were different for the Demons, who were recognizing D.J. Sturn, Trevon Williams, Jacobi Coleman, Shamar Rouse and Lance Franklin. They won 67-59 – a one-point third quarter proved plenty decisive for the visitor. They improved to 17-5. The Braves fell to 13-8.

In other action, Northside hosted Lee County. The girls won 47-26. The boys fell 65-60. For the Lady Eagles, it represented a sweep – they also won 57-50 back on Jan. 18. It also put them at 4-1 in 1-AAAAAA, 12-6 overall. That’s second behind Valdosta (4-0, 18-2). They lost 55-41 to the Lady Wildcats back on Jan. 15, but can even the score when the two meet again Friday (in Valdosta).

The boys fell to 1-4, 4-15, just ahead of Valdosta (0-4, 9-10) – fourth – in the standings.

Houston County was also in action at Coffee. That resulted in losses for both the girls and boys. The first came up short 47-34, the latter, 70-49.
