Coffee County played host to Warren County on Friday night in a District 6AAA basketball doubleheader at the Joe Frank Patch Memorial gymnasium. The Lady Raiders used a stifling defense and balanced scoring to grind out a 36 to 26 win.

Ginny Clayborne added 6 points and Missy Jones scored 5. Katie Reid was named the Gateway Tire and Service Center Player of the Game. The Lady Raiders improved their season record to 12 and 11 and their district record to 4 and 1.
The boy’s game started with a bang as the Raiders raced out to a 14 to 5 lead behind some great inside play from Addison Carter and Anthony Jackson. Warren County battled back to tie it at the half at 22 and set up a frantic 2nd half before a packed house at “The Patch.” The Raiders scored the 1st five points of the second half and never trailed again as they battled to a 62 to 50 district win. Coffee County was led in scoring by Lance Crismond who had 17 points. Lance was recognized before the game for reaching the 1,000 point career scoring mark. Lucas Crismond added 16 points, including 15 in the 2nd half. Anthony Jackson scored 10 points while Addison Carter netted 8. Lucas Crismond was named the Gateway Tire and Service Center Player of the Game. The Raiders upped their mark to 9-13 on the year and they are now 1 and 4 in district play.
