Armuchee boys win at hom
By Tyler Greenawalt
Coosa is becoming one of the deadliest teams in Region 7-AA from outside the arc, and on Tuesday it shot Armuchee out of its own arena with six 3-pointers in the first quarter which set the tone for a 62-44 Eagles win.
Armuchee and Coosa traded blows in the early goings of Tuesday’s region contest, but the host Lady Indians took control from there and won 56-30.
Rockmart Middle School had four individual champions and two second-place finishers on Saturday in the FCAA Middle School Wrestling Championships to capture the overall title with 204.5 points.

Behind 26 points by Claire Tibbetts, Armuchee cruised to a 76-44 win over Adairsville.
For three quarters, Armuchee and Gordon Lee fought back and forth, trading leads and shots, and headed into the final frame locked in a one-point game.
Armuchee head coach Kerry Wildes looked at his team Tuesday night and noticed a considerable size advantage over visiting Region 7-AA foe Gordon Lee.
Armuchee overcame a six point deficit heading into the final quarter Saturday night and defeated Southeast Whitfield 54-44.
If the Class 2A State Duals next weekend can even come close to equaling the excitement and drama of the Area 3-AA Duals that took place at Gordon Lee High School on Saturday, then wrestling fans in Macon will be in for a treat.
