    Hailea Rickett goes up for a lay up against Darlington in the 24th annual Battle of the States tournament.

Three losses for Lady Jackets

In years past the Lady Yel- low Jacket varsity basketball team has used the Battle of the States basketball tourna- ment as a springboard for success in the second half of their season. The tournament ran Dec. 27-29 in Hiawas- see. With their struggles so far this season, Hayesville entered this year’s tourna- ment looking for a spark. The Lady Jackets opened the tournament with a 52- 42 loss to tournament host Towns County. Day two saw Hayesville fall 37-32 to Polk County, TN. and on the third and final day, the Lady Jack- ets fell 51-46 to Darlington from Rome, GA.
