Lady Bears, Warhawks win; Lady Eagles earn big win over Lee County

Houston County also improved to 12-2 overall in the non-region, but cross-town rival, contest. Veterans fell to 7-10.

On the boys’ side, the Warhawks improved to 10-7. The Bears fell to 4-10.

Elsewhere, Northside’s girls earned a big Region 1-AAAAAA win over Lee County. The Lady Eagles won 60-51 to improve to 1-2 in the division, 8-5 overall. The Lady Trojans opened region play 0-1 and slipped to just 11-2.

The boys weren’t as fortunate. They fell 69-39 to drop to 0-3 in the division, 2-10 overall. Lee County improved to 1-0, 10-6.
