Cox Mill basketball gets first wins

In the first annual Cox Mill High School Holiday Basketball Tournament, there were two other firsts: the first school wins for the girls' and boys' basketball teams.

The Charger boys took down the Lake Norman Charter Knights in the first round Monday night and the girls' beat Queens Grant Tuesday afternoon.

Boys' coach Brad Hinson organized the tournament this year, saying he wanted to start the tradition at a new school. He organized the Cabarrus County tournament at Jay M. Robinson last year.

He said the tournament has been a success so far and the two wins are just icing on the cake.

"Winning makes it a little better," he said.
