The Covington News - - SPORTS - MATT SMITH msmith@cov­news.com

For his ef­forts on the basketball court, Ea­gles se­nior Treyvon Francis has been named the East­side Ath­lete of the Week.

With his deadly shot and court vi­sion, Francis helped the Ea­gles notch their 12th con­sec­u­tive win over the week­end against North Oconee, while keep­ing East­side atop Re­gion 8- AAAA with a game- high 24 points against vis­it­ing John­son.

Against John­son, Francis helped the Ea­gles grab an early 27- 12 lead, scor­ing five con­sec­u­tive points, be­fore drain­ing a pair of free throws at the end of the con­test to seal a 62- 57 vic­tory.

One day later, the se- nior guard hit crit­i­cal free throws once again to seal the vic­tory, help­ing the Ea­gles go on a 5- 0 run in the fourth to clinch a 62- 43 win.

Francis and the Ea­gles re­turn to ac­tion on the road Fri­day night in re­gion play against Lanier. Game time is 8: 30 p. m.

East­side closes out its home sched­ule with two con­tests against Al­covy and Madi­son County.
