A promising beginning: Fayette boys, Higbee girls are victorious on opening night

As a matter of fact, the Falcons never trailed in their season opener Monday night at Higbee. Fayette controlled the tempo, led by Davis Valencia’s double-double of 21 points and 11 rebounds in a 67-54 win, the Falcons’ first road win since Feb. 12, 2013.
