Yates High School Advances in Playoffs with Staggering Victory Over Columbia
Style Magazine Newswire | 2/22/2019, 11:31 a.m.
The high school basketball playoffs continued around the area Monday night, highlighted with a staggering 107-point victory. The Yates High School Lions took on the West Columbia Roughnecks. Yates took control of the entire game from the jump. The Lions led 32-8 to end the first quarter, thanks in part to Yates dominating every aspect on the floor. The school's basketball team is no stranger to huge wins. In January 2010, Yates set a new state record with a 170-35 win over Lee High School. At the time, the defeat raised questions over whether Yates was fair in pushing up the score or if it was bad sportsmanship. A few weeks later in a rematch with Lee, the Lions hammered them again, this time 125-26. Fast forward nearly a decade, and it's clear Yates has held on to its winning ways.
