Starting off the break, the Highland Home School Flying Squadron traveled to Brantley High School for a Christmas tournament.

Opening the tournament, Highland Home was defeated by Linden.

Turning things around during the second game, they took a win over Luverne, 62-50.

Leading the team in points during the match off with the LHS Tigers was sophomore Noah Phillips with 13 points.

Throughout the tournament, senior Drick Bell led the team for an overall total of 27 points.

“I’m proud of our boys. They’re working hard and improving throughout every game,” said HHS boys coach Shawn Sellers.

The boys took another loss in the tournament to the Pleasant Home Eagles.

“It’s exciting to be a Squadron because everyone is buying in and the future is bright for us here at Highland Home,” Sellers comments.

The Flying Squadron will travel to Zion Chapel on Dec. 29 to play the Rebels and Lady Rebels.

On Jan. 3, the Squadron will begin region play against the Mckenzie High School Tigers.
