Tuesday’s games were postponed due to inclement weather.

The Wildcats improved to 8-0 on Friday with a 38-34 victory over Evans behind Travis Johnson’s 12 points.

In other boys action, Lee kept pace behind Smokey Road while two games ahead of East Coweta and Evans for second place.

Both Evans and East Coweta are currently tied for third place at 4-4, with ECMS hold- ing the current tiebreaker.

Arnall’s boys also picked up its first win of the season against Madras as both teams moved even with each other at 1-7. The Knights picked up 16 points from Fernandez Jones and 14 from Jalen Whisby in a 45-29 victory over the Eagles.

In girls action, Arnall stayed on top of the CCMSAL standings with a 28-22 win over Madras. The Lady Knights improved to 6-2, one game ahead of both Smokey Road and Evans. Jeffraniquia Parson led Arnall with 12 points while Charla Echols had a team-high 10 for the Lady Eagles (3-5).
