COLDSPRING —Groveton was dominated 86-22 Coldspring-Oakhurst on Nov. 23.
Groveton Coach Kale Dudding gave props to the Trojans for being one of the better 3A teams in the state.
“If they aren’t ranked yet, they will be soon,” Dudding said.
He said it was great practice for the Indians to work on breaking the press, and that facing tough competition in the preseason should get them ready for district in a couple of weeks.
Jarrett Loftin has been a standout on both sides of the ball, and Johnny Facio has helped greatly coming off of the bench and offering a spark when he goes in the game, Dudding said.
Trojans Coach Greg Devers said that even with the scoring gaps, his team still is working all the kinks out.
“We have two hurt players that are on the sidelines and have not been able to play and get ready for the season,” Devers said. “When we get all healthy, we will be able to fine tune the offense and defense for the coming season.”
Cam Shaw-Rucker and Luke Monroe tied for high points with 23, followed by Chris Hardin with 13.
