Watauga District MS girls romp past Knights, 38-21

By David Rogers. BOONE, N.C. — A tight, defensive basketball game between the Watauga District Middle School girls team and Providence Academy in the first half morphed into something more in the second half on Jan. 17 at the Watauga Community Recreation Center. After leading 12-5 at halftime, the Watauga girls exploded for 26 second half points en route to a convincing, 38-21 win over the Johnson City, Tenn.-based Knights.

Ten Watauga athletes made it into the scoring column, led by Blair Haines’ game-high 16 points.
