NAMS basketball to conclude season

North Augusta Middle School's basketball program may be in celebration mode Thursday, with the conclusion of the season and both teams in the running for the Aiken County title.

The boys have qualified for the championship game, set for about 6:30 p.m. Paul Knox will be the host site, and the opponent will be either New Ellenton or Kennedy, depending on the result of a Tuesday game.

The Yellow Jackets' playoff win was 52-24 over Schofield, and the winners' top scorers were Darius Copeland, with 15 points, and Jadon Daugherty, with 14.

North Augusta's girls were to have played Tuesday, versus Aiken, and the winner of that game was to have advanced to play for the county crown today at 5:30 p.m., with Paul Knox as the host site.

Paul Knox's girls also qualified for the playoffs, but lost on Monday in the first round. The score and the name of the opposing team were not available.
