      Big Brothers Big Sisters Washington County is still seeking volunteers for its Corporate Mentoring Program at East Washington Middle School.
    The corporate program, which was made possible thanks to a grant by the Washington County Community Foundation, is different than the regular program in that the adult volunteer is only asked to have lunch with their Little one day a week.
    “It's where someone from the community goes to the school and takes a child out to lunch once a week,” said BBBS Director Monika Spaulding. “They can go to the school and eat with them or they can take them somewhere.”
    Volunteers are asked to commit for a full school year. Bigs, or adult volunteers, are usually matched with students in the fifth or sixth grade so they can be together for additional years. But students are accepted to the program in the fifth through eighth grades.

    The Eastern and Salem girls' basketball teams were on a collision course to face one another on Nov. 30.
    The Lady Lions entered the contest with a 4-1 record and the Lady Musketeers were a perfect 4-0.
    When all was said and done, Salem kept momentum and left the gym with a 48-47 win.
    The game was filled with excitement on both sides.
    Eastern took the lead late when Emily Newcomb scored on a run out with just under 30 seconds remaining.
    Salem's Annie Newkirk got the ball on the inbounds play, drove the length of the floor and scored a basket.
    Newkirk was also fouled on the play and convert the free throw that gave the Lady Lions a lead.
    The Lady Musketeers still had two opportunities to answer.
    Melissa Lewis missed a shot, but her teammate, Jocelyn Mousty was on the other side of the rim for the rebound.
    She went up for a wide-open layup, but couldn't convert.

Rock Creek takes Braves PDF Print E-mail

    Rock Creek came to Borden having both lost season-opening games and both were in search of a victory Saturday (Nov. 28). Rock Creek ended up being the team that left Borden with a 71-62 win.
    Borden came in the first quarter pushing the pace up trying to minimize the impact of Rock Creeks size. Rock Creek had the inside size with  6’6’ Dontale Mayes and 6’4” Joe Pearson who were both tall and big. Borden managed to neutralize Rock Creek’s size with quickness and keeping the ball out of the middle.      
    Dalton Wagoner and Jacob Rich put up nine points inside using their quickness. Rock Creek’s answer came from Ethan Hawn working from a guard position putting up eight points. Rock Creek lead the first quarter 15 - 13.
    In the second quarter Rock Creek switched defenses to a full court press and a zone. The press had little effect but the zone slowed the game down. It minimized Borden’s slashing drives and slowed the ball movement down. Jon Ashby scored Rock Creek’s only 3-point shot of the game while the scoring was spread among five players for the quarter.
