GLEASON — It’s always easy to tell when it’s time for middle school basketball when the Gleason Middle School Jamboree rolls around. The jamboree got underway Saturday morning, October 15 with South Gibson and Greenfield girls tipping it off. South Gibson defeated the Lady ‘Jackets 46-31 while the Greenfield boys lost 45-21.
 
Huntingdon — Dyersburg
Both Huntingdon teams played Dyersburg. The Fillies had issues scoring as they fell behind early 12-4 and never really got anything going offensively. They trailed 25-6 at half and while they scored better in the second half they eventually lost 44-16.
 
The Mustangs went toe to toe with the Trojans in the first period trailing 10-6 at the end of one. Dyersburg outscored Huntingdon 10-2 in the second period to build a 20-8 lead by halftime. Huntingdon came out hot in the third period scoring 8 unanswered points making it a 23-16 game with just under two minutes left in the third period. Dyersburg pulled away and defeated the Mustangs 37-24.
 
Gleason played Milan in the final two games of the afternoon. The Lady Bulldogs kept a comfortable lead until Gleason scrapped their way back in the game by the fourth period and cut the Milan lead to four before falling 36-32 in the end.
 
Gleason boys didn’t fare as well with scoring issues during their game. They fell 37-10
