Columbia (5-12, 2-1) tipped off the victories Jan. 14 with a 67-58 home win over Tylertown before besting Seminary 63-49 at home Friday.
Another week is in the books and the wins keep on piling up for Columbia Academy. The Cougars pushed their winning streak to 20 games, a school record, with a trio of impressive victories and are embarking on a season for the ages.
For the third time in four years, a Columbia High School tennis star will be taking their talents to Hinds Community College.
Senior Elizabeth Knight signed a letter of intent Friday to attend the Raymond school on scholarship, joining Bryce Ramshur last year and Bryce Livingston in 2016.
It took every last second of the 32 minutes on the clock Tuesday night, but the Lady Cougars held on against Lamar Christian School for their sixth district win of the season.
Columbia Academy (7-14, 6-2) outlasted Lamar at home in a 31-30 nail biter that came down to a half-court heave at the buzzer.
