Back in the hunt.
Just a few days ago, Elkins was forced to forfeit games due to the playing of an ineligible player — which now puts Fairmont Senior at 5-3 and East Fairmont at 3-5. North Marion still remains at 1-8 since the Huskies do not play Elkins this season.
With the playoffs looming, Fairmont Senior is back in the thick of things. With a win over Bridgeport tonight, it will allow FSHS an opportunity of getting back into playoff contention. East Fairmont will be playing to be a spoiler at Philip Barbour, and North Marion will try to get its second win of the season at home versus Grafton.
Here’s a look at today’s games:

They say defense wins championships.
If that’s the case, Fairmont Senior may be well on its way when it comes time for the state tournament.

North Marion survives East’s rally to win, 54-47: PHOTOS
“Backstreet Boys! Backstreet Boys! Backstreet Boys!” the East Fairmont student section jeered at North Marion’s basketball team Wednesday night.

Opron’s double-double leads Huskies over No. 5 FSHS: PHOTOS
It all came down to one play.
It wasn’t a buzzer-beater nor was it in the final seconds, but when North Marion’s Chase Banker dribbled out of trouble and found center Cody Opron underneath the basket for a score late in the fourth quarter, it put the Huskies in a great position.
Polar Bears use strong second half, topple NMHS
