The Winona Christian basketball teams split a pair of games last week in district play.
Both WCS teams swept Indianola on Tuesday as the Lady Stars won 42-37 and the Stars took a 60-49 win. On Friday, Winona traveled to West Point and was swept by Oak Hill as the Lady Stars lost 56-53 in overtime and the Stars fell 49-33.
Growing pains is an apt description of the Winona boys and girls soccer teams as the young and largely inexperienced teams have struggled. The girls have two wins this season, while the boys are looking for their first victory.
But both coaches have seen improvements.
Carroll Academy boys coach Tommy Acy knew his team would be challenged at Oak Hill last week.
Acy was right as the Raiders handed the Rebels their first district loss with a 60-42 loss. The Lady Rebels also fell in a 37-35 contest.
Carroll Academy came back from the Christmas break and swept a pair of district contests from rival Winona Christian.
The Lady Rebels took a 41-28 win over the Lady Stars while the Rebels took a 54-42 win over the Stars to sweep the season series.
If the Winona-Montgomery County Consolidated School Board approves a request from Winona High School to add volleyball as a girls sport, the team will compete as an independent during the 2020-21 school year.
The second half of the J.Z. George basketball season gets started Friday with a home game against Coffeeville High School.
The Lady Jaguars and Jaguars will also be at home Saturday as they take on Kosciusko High School at 2 p.m.
