Local Sports: XTown Showdown turns into Dragon sweep

HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL FRIDAY, DECEMBER 3RD

Clinton girls 54 Anderson County 47…After a sluggish start that included a scoreless first quarter from senior standout Sarah Burton, the Lady Dragons rallied to win their district opener on the road at archrivals AC.  Burton overcame the slow start that had a lot to do with the Lady Mavs’ defense to score a game-high 21 points and is now just 22 points away from the all-time school scoring record currently held by her coach, Alicia Phillips.  Freshman Bailey Burroughs stepped up with another strong effort, scoring 13 points and grabbing double-digit rebounds for CHS (3-2, 1-0).  Emily Mustard (19 points) and Kylee Alvis (13) paced the now 3-2, 0-1 Lady Mavs.

Clinton boys 70 Anderson County 38…The Dragons started fast, kept the hammer down and never let up as they rolled at Anderson County.  Rishon Bright scored 21 points and Jackson Garner 19 to lead the Dragons to their fifth straight win and a 1-0 record to start their limited District schedule.  Conner Martin led AC (4-2, 0-1) with 14 points.
