Varsity Girls 45

Congrats to new Coach Jason Harkey on his first Varsity win as the Girls team opened their season up with a 45-34 win over the Southern Guilford Cougars to move to 1-0. ORMA started slowly and trailed 9-5 at the end of the 1st quarter. ORMA played better in the 2nd quarter and led 19-18 at the half. The 3rd quarter was the difference as ORMA outscored the Cougars 15-5 before cruising to the victory. Cadet Lexi Ballard had 13 points including 9 points in the decisive 3rd quarter run to go along with 6 rebounds and 5 steals. Cadet Sophia Turner also had a strong all around game with 5 points, 6 steals and 5 rebounds. Hannah Parker led ORMA with 21 points including five - 3 point baskets. ORMA will participate in the preseason jamboree on Thursday. They will play at 4:00 and again at 9:00. Both games will be played in Bonner.

“At my time at Oak Ridge, Sergeant Major Lewis taught me how to form my beret after informing me that I looked like a “soup sandwich.” He also taught me to lead instead of command. I still use the leadership practices I learned from him today as the Assistant Chief of my fire station. Please send the Sergeant Major my kind regards. *Glad to see the Oak Leaf is back!”
