Thursday night was a special one for eighth-graders at Coffee County Middle School. The school honored its soon-to-be freshmen with eighth-grade night, which was the final home game for seven Lady Raiders and eight Red Raiders.

The girls’ team had a successful send-off, beating Warren County 49-42 in overtime to secure the No. 2 seed in this week’s Central Tennessee Conference. The Raiders almost made it two OT games in one night, but a last-second 3 fell short as the home team fell 34-31.

• Kaylan Brinkley, daughter of Nicole and Rodney Brinkley

• Samantha Kirby, daughter of Valerie and David Kirby

• Bella Lawson, daughter of Hilarie and Rodger Lawson

• Kaylee Suggs, daughter of Kim Carroll and Brandon Suggs

• Kara Wheeler, daughter of Alethia Rawn and Matt Wheeler

• Kyler Whittley, daughter of Amanda and William Whittley
