Basketball season draws to a close in Madison County
Madison County basketball teams traveled to Manhattan Christian last week for four days of basketball – at the end of the 11/12C district tournament, both the Mustangs and Lady Mustangs and the Lady Falcons from Twin Bridges earned spots in this week’s divisional tournament in Hamilton.
Mustang and Panther fans packed the Sheridan gym on Feb. 12 for a cross-county match up that ultimately had both Ennis teams walking away with wins, despite Sheridan’s best efforts.
Cross-county rivals – Harrison and Sheridan – clashed in the Harrison gym on Feb. 6 for a night of purple-themed basketball. Both schools have cat mascots, Wildcats and Panthers, and both claim purple as their school color.
Twin Bridges and Ennis fans packed the gym on Jan. 27, when the Mustangs hosted the Falcons for two close games.
A long line of Falcon fans wound their way through Silver Star and Whitehall to Harrison on Jan. 23 to watch their teams take on the Harrison/Willow Creek Wildcats. Though the Wildcats and Lady Wildcats put up a good fight, but both Falcon teams came out on top.
Basketball round up
On Jan. 8, the Harrison/Willow Creek Wildcats headed south through the Madison Valley to face the Ennis Mustangs in two fast-paced varsity basketball games. The Mustangs used their home court advantage, and both the boys and girls teams beat Harrison.
