The DeKalb County High School basketball teams dropped a district doubleheader Friday night in Livingston. The Lady Tigers lost to the Livingston Academy Lady Wildcats, the ninth ranked team in the state in Class AA, 57-26, while the Tigers were dealt an 82-69 setback in the nightcap to the host Wildcats, who were ranked just outside the top ten in this past week's poll.
Livingston got off to a slow start in the girls' game, but after a mid-first period timeout, the Lady 'Cats turned up the heat. Livingston held the Lady Tigers to just one point in the opening period, as the hosts opened up an 18-1 lead. By the time Cynthia Woodward made DeKalb's first field goal, with just over four minutes to go in the first half, Livingston Academy had already built a 24-3 lead. The Lady Wildcats led 27-7 at the half, and 44-14 at the end of three periods.
