Published 4:11 pm Friday, January 8, 2016

The Bainbridge Middle School eighth grade Bearcats dropped a 52-46 decision to the Seminole County Middle School eighth grade Bearcats Thursday in Donalsonville.

Coach Heith Maxwell said his Bearcats, who are now 4-4 on the season, made too many mistakes against the Indians.

“We did not shoot or handle the ball very well yesterday,” Maxwell said. “When we played Seminole County at home, we beat them 49-28. What we need to do now is go back to practice and get ready for our final two games, which will both be at home.”
