High school hoops round-up

It was another busy weekend of high school basketball.

On Saturday, the Clinton Lady Dragons downed Campbell County, 63-50, at home as Sarah Burton scored 22 points. Jazz Moore and Naiyah Sanders each tallied 17 for CHS in the win.

In the nightcap Saturday, the Dragons held off a feisty squad of Cougars, 58-50, thanks in large part to clutch free throw shooting down the stretch. Jackson Garner scored all 16 of his points in the second half and Rishon Bright added 13 for the Dragons.

Clinton is off until Friday, when they host Oak Ridge. The Dragons and Lady Dragons were supposed to play at Central Tuesday, but that doubleheader has been postponed due to COVID issues at Central.
