Wednesday, June 20, 2018

It all began with a 56-point win over Stuart Heights and was followed by an impressive 82-point victory over the defending league champion Signal Mountain Green Giants on Monday.\

And now those folks from Hooterville can relax for a minute after winning for the fifth straight meet on Wednesday with a 410-385 win at Dalton.

Signal Mountain also got back on the winning track with a 418-289 win at Calhoun on Wednesday.

Anna Boyd, Leah Boyd, Noah Holliman and Jed Holliman all scored 19 points to lead the Tidal Waves while Brighton Smith and Sarah Sabou were next with 17 apiece.
