PREP BASKETBALL: Aggies down Oneonta 65-45, improve to 2-1 in area; Fairview girls fall to 4A's top team

FAIRVIEW — Elijah Garrison and Chance Hill provided as much offensive production as Oneonta managed in all four quarters, and Fairview continued to save its best for area play, soundly defeating the Redskins 65-45 Monday at home.

The Aggies, who now have three wins on the season, improved to 2-1 against area opponents.

Garrison put together one of his most complete games to date with 25 points, eight rebounds, six assists and five steals, while Hill had quite the night of his own with 20 points.

Other Purple and Gold contributors were Tyler Yearwood, eight points, 11 rebounds and two blocks; Ethan Widner, three points and 10 rebounds; Hunter Brewer, three points; Terance Maze, two points; and Sid Smith and Devan Parker, one point apiece.

“I'm proud of our enthusiasm. We are puling for each other and competing with everything we have,” first-year Fairview coach Kurt Knight said. “We have to continue to improve each day and be at our best come tournament time.”

Will Standridge scored 12 points for Oneonta.

The Aggies were slated to host county-rival Good Hope Tuesday.


Varsity Girls

% Oneonta 57, Fairview 34: As so many squads from every which classification have already done this season, the Lady Aggies fell prey to Class 4A's top-ranked team on Monday night.

The Redskins' big three of Abby Blackwood (15 points), Destiney Elliott (12 points and 12 rebounds) and Maddie Boyd (11 points) proved to be too much to handle for Fairview, which was led by Taylor Ann Yeager (11 points) and Sarah Harper (seven points and 10 rebounds).

Other Purple and Gold contributors were Kennedy Trimble, five points; Ashley Latham and Desiree Wilhite, four each; and Marlana Johnson, three.


Junior Varsity Boys

% Fairview 40, Oneonta 30: Austin Fletcher and Kyle Knop had matching 14-point performances to lift the Aggies to the victory Monday.

Austin Harris scored five points, and Seth Lancaster had three in the winning effort.
