- Cannon County's basketball teams suffered losses in a a rare doubleheader sweep here Monday night, but in much different fashion.
The No. 3-ranked Lionettes, who will tumble when the Class AA statewide poll is released Tuesday, suffered a 59-39 loss to No. 6 Livingston. It was the third consecutive District 8-AA for the Lionettes (18-5, 3-3).
Cannon County's boys put together a strong effort before falling, 74-71, in a see-saw affair. The Lions (16-8, 4-2) maintain a share of the District 8-AA lead. Cody Ruehlen poured in 23 for Cannon County.
Both teams will play host to York Institute in key District 8-AA games at Robert A. Harris Gymnasium Friday. The girls game begins at 6 p.m.
