Columbia County high school basketball teams are taking an extended break after starting the season five weeks ago.
One of the major storylines this season has been the play of the Lakeside boys, who are riding a six-game winning streak and is 8-3. The Panthers, under first-year coach Jeff Williams, are coming off a big region win Friday night at Greenbrier.
Lakeside, which returns to action next week, is expected to be one of the main contenders for the region championship. The Panthers are seeking their first region title in school history.
