Eagles Boy’s & Girl’s Basketball Team Show off their Abilities
The Screaming Eagles Boy’s and Girl’s Basketball Teams held their Mid-Night Madness this past Thursday Night to a large home crowd.
This will be the 1st Season for Ashley Head Basketball Coach David Rutledge, who previously coached at Mallard Creek. Mallard Creek was 20-9 overall last Season and made the state Playoffs.
“Mid-Night Madness was a laid back event, which was geared toward the students” according to Coach Rutledge. The students packed the gym and enjoyed: a hot shot game, 3 point contest, a concert, and the girls and boys teams had a brief scrimmage. Coach Rutledge added, “It was a great turnout and the students and players had a great time.
