Coach Scott Jeffries and the Pineville Middle Mountain Lions stand and pose for their trophy after capturing the All “A” in Middlesboro. The Pineville Middle School boys basketball team improved to 18-2 on the season as they captured the 13th region All “A” conference tournament after defeating Middlesboro Middle 64-55 in overtime. Jeffrey said this team has played with a lot of effort and team discipline this year. “They come to practice and work hard each and every day,” he said. “They are a joy to coach.” The young Lions will be competing for the 13th Regional title in mid-January at Whitley County High School.
