Roxboro Community School’s (RCS) fourth annual Red and Black Basketball Game was held on Saturday, Nov. 2 at Helena Gym. RCS basketball teams raised $1,240 to support the athletic department.

The junior varsity (JV) boys won against the varsity boys with Te’Shon Clayton as the JV leading scorer. The middle school girls won against the varsity girls with Elana Ingram as the middle school leading scorer. The final game between the underclassmen and upperclassmen on the varsity high school boys’ team was won by the underclassmen with a last minute three-pointer by Darius McGhee.

The Red and Black Game is a fundraiser for the athletic department to help pay for umpires, referees, uniforms and other expenses throughout the school year.

Middle School Principal Donna Ingram said, “The game was fun and exciting. I thought it was an outstanding way for our teams to usher in the basketball season. There was a tremendous out-pouring of support from students, staff, parents and the community.”
