The Leake Academy Basketball teams traveled to Heritage Academy in Columbus tonight for MAIS District basketball action. The Leake Academy girls came away with a another big win but it was the Heritage Boys winning big over the Leake Academy Boys. The Lady Rebels entered tonight’s game 23-1 on the season and ranked #1 in the state MAIS District 4A. The Lady Rebels took the lead early and quickly took control of the game, leading by 26 point at halftime (42-16). The Lady Rebels were up by 36 after 3 quarters and played all the reserve players with a running clock in the final quarter, winning the game 67-30.
It was a very different story for the Rebels and Patriots of Heritage Academy. The Rebels fall behind early and were never able to mount a comeback. The Patriots were leading the game by 32 points at halftime and finished the game up by 45 points over the Rebels (68-23).
