LCHS boys basketball standout Jacob Cumbie drives past several defenders en route to the basket during the Indians’ Friday night region matchup with Cherokee Bluff. The Indians went into the game shorthanded, but fought to the very end, falling 69-65. “We kept fighting,” head coach Jeff Steele said after the game. “I told them before the game, ‘I don’t care if we’re losing by 30 I want to see you battling like the game’s tied or whatever’ and I got it from them. We’re just going to keep being positive and if we keep getting that kind of effort out of them I think things will be good for us.”
