Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High School sports

Morehead State women's basketball junior guard Jazzmyn Elston has been tabbed as the Ohio Valley Conference Newcomer of the Week, the league announced last Tuesday morning.

The Warriors saw a nine-game winning streak emphatically snapped by the North Murray Mountaineers, 68-48, Tuesday night in Chatsworth.

The Ringgold Lady Tigers and the LFO Warriors extended their impressive winning streaks on Friday as the Catoosa County rival schools split a pair of Region 6-AAA games in Fort Oglethorpe.

The LaFayette Ramblers welcomed LFO to south Walker County on Tuesday and posted a 59-6 victory over the visiting Warriors in a battle of future area opponents.

The LFO boys ran their record to 13-3 overall and 7-2 in Region 6-AAA by steamrolling Haralson County, 75-44, in Tallapoosa on Tuesday night.

An outstanding season for the LFO Warriors continued on Saturday with a big 65-51 home victory over Region 6-AAA rival Calhoun.

Most of the local wrestlers from the Catoosa and Walker County area tested themselves at the Murray County Invitational in Chatsworth on Saturday and it was a big day for Gordon Lee's Penn Askew and LaFayette's Matthew Wallin.

Down by as many as 14 points in the first half, the LFO Warriors staged a comeback on Friday night and picked up their fourth consecutive victory with a 62-57 home victory over Sonoraville.

The LFO Warriors trailed by six points after one quarter, but would come back to defeat Chattooga, 51-41, to claim the boys' championship in the South Crest Bank Holiday Tournament at Gordon Lee High School on Saturday.
