Exams over, Christmas coming: Lets cram in a couple of games
By Joe Williams, Sports Editor
Williamson County high schools will put exams behind them today and basketball teams are trying to close out the pre-Christmas schedule with a couple of busy nights.
The slate opens tonight with one game, as Page travels to Cornersville.
Tomorrow night is loaded with action. Brentwood Academy plays host to Mary Institute and Country Day School (MICDS) from St. Louis and BGA welcomes FRA to the Cherry Sports Center, off Ernest Rice Lane, for a girls/boys double-header. Fairview is at home against Lewis County, and Independence travels to Tullahoma. In the southern part of the county, Spring Hill has a date with Summit.
Several teams are involved in multi-day events. The Columbia Classic features Ravenwood against Stewarts Creek and Franklin playing MBA on Friday night. On Saturday, Ravenwood plays again, facing Shelbyville Central.
Brentwood is set to play in Mount Juliet’s event, tilting with the host Bears on Friday night and facing a show down with LaVergne on Saturday night in a much anticipated contest between two of the top teams in the mid-state.
On Saturday night, Lighthouse Christian of Antioch visits Independence. Lighthouse has been on a tear this year, winning their first 10 games and scoring almost at will.
Ensworth invades BGA in a Division II contest, with Brentwood Academy at home against Hamilton Heights Christian Academy.
The highlight game of the night features East Nashville, the Class 2A state runner-up just three years ago, heads to Centennial to play the Cougars.
