Crestview MIddle School---
The Crestview Lady Cougars wrapped up regular season play on Tuesday, with a home tilt against conference foe Bellmont, on a night filled with festivities.
Crestview's annual recognition of its 8th grade athletes took place between the 7th and 8th grade contests, as well at the game serving as a "Future Cougar Night".

The 7th graders closed out their pre tourney play with a 7-5 record.
The 8th graders were paced Emma Szelis with 9 points on 3 of 3 shooting from three point range.
