Wolves, Ladies collect district wins
The Wolves and Lady Wolves traveled to Crowley Friday night at Crowley High, both picking up district wins.
The Wolves notched their first district win of their season with a 52-47 win over the Gents, despite a delay late in the fourth quarter due to an altercation among the players. The final three minutes were played with a cleared gym, free of spectators, following the ejection of two Crowley and three Rayne players.
The win places Rayne at 1-2 in district play, while the loss kept the Gents down at 0-3 in league play.
In earlier action, the Lady Wolves claimed a rather easy 61-32 win over Crowley, improving their slate to 15-12 overall and 4-1 in district play. Crowley fell to 6-15 overall and 0-4 in league play.
Rayne was led on the night by Keysuana Moore with 17 points, followed by Tajane Butler and Tiesha Young each at an even 10. Amari Collins chipped in eight points.
In earlier action, both squads hosted Washington-Marion, seeing the Wolves fall short at 63-79 and the Lady Wolves pulling out a 58-45 win.
Both squads were scheduled to host LaGrange this week, in addition to a road trip to Leesville on Friday as both teams will try to improve their district records.
