## LCMS boys basketball teams garner 4 runner-up trophies

The sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade Lincoln County Middle School boys basketball teams are just a couple weeks into the new season and they’ve already claimed a handful of trophies.

None of the Eagles teams can boast of a championship trophy as yet, but the sixth- and eighth-grade teams did walk away with runner-up trophies, two for each, as they competed in the Lincoln County Pre-Season Tournament and the KBC Invitational Tournament at Lexington.

The sixth-grade team, led by coach Lewis Cummins, finished as runner-up to Russell County Middle in its home pre-season tourney Nov. 9 and 10 and bowed to Tates Creek in the finals of the KBC tourney played this past weekend. The eighth-grade team, led by coach Eric Ralston, bowed to Northern Pulaski in the championship game of the preseason tourney fell to Lexington Catholic in the KBC final.

The seventh-grade Eagles, led by coach Carl-Lewis Cummins, were eliminated by Northern Pulaski in the semifinals of their own pre-season tourney and were knocked out by Southern Middle of Lexington in the KBC quarterfinals.
