LEONARD — The Caddo Mills Foxes and Rains Lady Wildcats of Emory won the two championship games on Saturday night at the 59th annual Leonard Holiday Basketball Tournament.

  Caddo Mills pulled away from Pottsboro to take the boys title with a 61-49 victory.

  Rains outscored host Leonard in overtime for a 62-59 victory in the girls finals.

  All-tournament selection Jason Thomason pumped in 18 points and the tournament’s most valuable player Tyler Townley scored 14 while running the Caddo Mills offense. Savion Neal also scored nine points for Caddo Mills and Jake Tumey added eight points while earning all-tournament honors.

  “We played pretty well,” said Caddo Mills coach Jason Thomason. “We saved our best for last. We didn’t really play all that well the first couple of days. We just won some ugly games. It feels good to kind of cap it off with a good night.”

  Aidan Cannon paced Pottsboro with 11 points.

  The Cardinals played without their top scorer Jaxon Recer, who is out with an injury. Recer recently signed to play at Wayland Baptist.

  Chanlee Oakes, who also pitched Rains to a Class 3A state softball title in the spring, pumped in 21 points to lead the Lady Wildcats to the overtime win over Leonard. Leo Terry, a shortstop on that softball team,  also fired in 20 points as the Lady Wildcats outscored Leonard 11-8 in overtime.

  Raven Fox led Leonard and all scorers with 22 points. Brooke Perry tossed in 11.

  Mo Russell pumped in 17 points to lead the Wolfe City Wolves to a 36-31 win over Wills Point in the boys third-place game.

  Bells, which lost to Rains in the semifinals, outscored Prairiland 63-44 in the girls third-place contest.
