Tonight, the Newton Rams and Eastside Eagles boys varsity basketball teams tipoff in a county rivalry battle for bragging rights, as both teams look to continue their impressive starts to the 2013-2014 season.
With just over a minute to go in the fourth quarter against Mundy's Mill Monday night, Eastside freshman basketball player Isaiah Miller got an introduction to what it takes to compete at the varsity level.
Eastside High's annual "Tase of Eastside" featured musical performances from David Clemons, Shane Willwood and Drew Park (above) at the fundraising event Saturday afternoon. The event raised $17,000 for the Eagles' Athletic Department last season. Proceeds from the event this year will go to the Eastside Athletic and Drama Departments.
