Coach Brock said the goal he set for the area tournament was for everyone to advance to sectionals, which they accomplished. “I told everyone to focus on doing the best that they could and the team part would take care of itself. I was very proud of our guys, some of them did not get the place they wanted, but were able to compete for another week. Anytime these young men are given a chance to compete they have risen to the occasion. These young men are dangerous and when given a fighters chance, anything can happen. This week for us will be fine tuning and our goal will be to place top six at sectionals to advance to state.”
Darlington will host sectionals this weekend, the top six placers will advance to the GHSA State Tournament in Macon.
