Jesse Bittick was high point with 16, Hunter Luther had six, PJ Purvis, Jaxon Gay, Cutter Lowe, and Kasen Citrano each had four.

Wdv Eagles

A flock of Eagles blocks a pass from a Hemphill Hornet on Friday. The Eagles won 74-58, continuing a streak for Woodville. Last Wednesday, in a tight game that could have gone either way, Woodville made off with a 52-51 victory over the Huntington Red Devils. Woodville has been performing well recently as they’ve won four of their last five matches, which provided a nice bump to their 14-14 record this season. Woodville returned to the road on Tuesday to take on the Pineywoods Community Academy Timberwolves in Diboll. Scores from that game were unavailable at press time. CHRIS EDWARDS | TCB
