Middle school teams split series with Hilltoppers to open new year

Starting the new year with a game in Erwin was an ideal situation for coach Kerri King’s Unicoi County Middle School Lady Devil varsity squad, with her girls claiming their tenth win of the season by taking down the Science Hill Lady Hilltoppers by the score of 53-29 during middle school action in Unicoi County last Thursday.
Hannah Rice led the offensive efforts for the middle school Lady Devils, draining 17 points in the win. Abbey True followed right behind in double figures with a 10-point performance. Deah Seward continued right behind with a nine-point game. Keelie Hall and Haley Peterson chipped in five points each. Ashlie Padgett, Neelee Griffith and Ashley Edwards tallied in the final points with four, two and one point each respectively.
The Blue Devil squad traveled to Johnson City and fell to the eighth grade Hilltoppers, who extended their record to 13 wins.
The UCMS basketball programs get a taste of the busy life this week playing against T.A. Dugger, after The Erwin Record’s press deadline, at UCMS during in-schools games on Monday.
John Sevier wraps up the week for UCMS on Thursday, Jan. 12, with the Lady Devils traveling to Sevier, while the boys will host Sevier in Erwin.
