Silverdale Academy (girls) 52, CSAS 39
CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Mariah Massengill scored 27 points to lead Silverdale Academy to its first-ever regular season District 5-A championship in a 52-39 win over Chattanooga Arts & Sciences Friday night.
The Seahawks (15-8, 6-0 in 5-A) entered the night having clinched at least a share of the title, but were focused on winning it outright for the first time.
Silverdale held the Lady Patriots scoreless in the second quarter to turn a two-point deficit into a 20-11 halftime lead and never trailed again. The lead grew as large as 16 in the second half before CSAS (9-14, 5-3) rallied to pull within single digits with six minutes to play.
Massengill scored nine of her points in the fourth quarter, and 16 total in the second half, to help the Seahawks put the game away.
Brooke Mitchell scored 11 points to lead CSAS.
Ooltewah (boys) 44, Bradley Central 30
CLEVELAND, Tenn. (WRCB) -- Bradley Central started hot, but finished cold in a 44-30 home loss to Ooltewah that allowed the Owls to clinch the outright District 5-AAA championship.
Ooltewah entered the night with at least a share of the regular season title and already owned the No. 1 seed in the upcoming district tournament by virtue of a coin flip, but they hardly opened like the district's top team.
Tucker Bass hit a 3-pointer from the left wing for the game's first points, but the Owls (17-8, 10-2 in 5-AAA) failed to score another point in the first quarter.
Bradley Central, meanwhile, came out firing. The Bears (14-11, 8-4) closed the quarter on a 13-0 run to open a double-digit lead, and led by as many as 12 before the Owls started to chip away.
Ooltewah managed to pull within 21-16 at the break, then opened the third quarter with a 12-2 run to move ahead. Bradley never recovered, mustering just nine points total in the second half.
Antonio Jackson led Ooltewah with 15 points and added eight assists. Bass also finished in double figures with 11 points and Andrew Ware added ten. Matthew Whitmire was the only Bradley Central player in double figures with 11 points.
