Going the extra mile
In the summer, chances for a basketball team to improve itself don’t come along often.
One such opportunity was a “play day” hosted Monday by Verbena.
Chilton County High played three games, defeating Clay-Chalkville and Booker T. Washington and losing to Dallas County High.
Verbena lost to Brantley, 78-30, in its first contest and was scheduled to play three more games, against Reeltown, B.B. Comer and Luverne.
The Red Devils didn’t score until Jason Ray’s rebound and putback 2:80 into the game.
Ray wound up with eight points, and Verbena was led by Brad Boswell’s 12 points.
Josh Williams had 12 points to pace CCHS over Clay, 42-33, but six other Tigers scored at least three points.
