Home court makes a lot of difference as far as Kingston and Loudon are concerned. When Kingston hosted Loudon on Jan. 7, the Jackets swept the Redskins, but Tuesday night it was the Redskins that brought out the brooms on their home floor.

Loudon opened the evening with a 56-42 win in the girls game and the Redskins completed the sweep with a come-from-behind 54-52 victory in the boys game.

Kingston fell behind early and could never catch up against the Lady Redskins. Loudon led 13-8 after eight minutes of play and added points in each of the next three quarters as they went on to the 14-point victory.

Despite the loss, Haley Cornellison had a big night for the Lady Jackets as she scored a game-high 23 points.

Kingston had a huge third period, outscoring Loudon 24-11 to take a 39-34 lead, but the Redskins bounced back and won the fourth period, 20-13, to put the finishing touches on their two-point victory,
