Deacons open district with 2 wins by Allen Gregory The Deacons opened their district with wins over Thomas Walker at home and Rye Cove on the road. At this point in the season, their record stands at 4- 6. Those six losses came in tournament games with really stiff competition.- Moreover, those losses were suffered when they had injuries to key players. Reid Edmonds and Denver Fritz missed the majority of those games with injuries. Fritz has played very little to this point and may not be able to play at all due to knee problems According to Coach Patrick Damron, the team chemistry is really good. The kids like to share with one another and they have confidence in each other that they will do their jobs in a given situation. For instance in the game with Thomas Walker, Ryan Milgrim, a freshman, toss- ed in 19 points with 15 of those points coming on five treys. In the game with Thomas Walker the Deacons won 67-59. Bryce Lawson added 14 and Justin Trent 12 in that victory. Also in that game Justin Trent had l0 rebounds while Trevor Hileman and Reid Edmonds each had six assists.

On Friday, the Deacons traveled to Rye Cove and came away with a 47-34 win. Talking with Coach Damron on Monday about the victory, he again emphasized the good team chemistry and the fact that he was playing eight or nine deep on his roster. Everybody was making excellent contributions to the team victory. For instance, ~ Dakota Trent only had six points but he didn't have a turnover, had several key assists and re- bounds, plus playing excellent defense. Others who didn't score big in the box score but made excellent contributions to the victory were David Grizzel and Justin Trent, each had nine re- bounds.. The Deacons got a balanced effort in scoring from three of its key players. Reid Edmonds and Trevor Hileman each had 11 points. They were closely followed by Bryce Lawson with 10.
