The Marlins, their regular season now complete at 1-7, got the maximum 19 points from Miah Lee, Isabella Lee, Kyle Berry, Ryan Berry, Reece Gallagher and Brandon Edge as a springboard for their 410-292 victory.

Kari Morris and Abi Austin were high-point scorers for Cumberland with 19 and 18 points, respectively, while Brianne Holsomback and Jeremiah Morris both finished with 17.

Both teams will be at Warner Park on Friday and Saturday for the season-ending Bill Caulkins City Meet.

In other meets on Monday, the Dalton Dolphins remained unbeaten after seven meets and moved a step closer to winning the Blue Division following a 413-337 win at Stuart Heights.  The Dolphins will be at Ooltewah on Thursday to finish an earlier meet that was suspended by storms with the Tidal Waves holding a seven-point lead.

The Tidal Waves improved to 3-4 with a 431-324 win at Cleveland.

The Waterdogs improved to 3-4 in the Red Division with a 402-303 win over Red Bank while Calhoun clinched the White Division at 7-0 with a 432-302 win over Ridgeside.
