Weight Class — 70
The Armuchee Indians captured their first state cheerleading state title Saturday morning in Columbus scoring 249 points to best Region 7-AA rival Coosa, which finished in second place three points behind the Indians at 246.
Going into overtime tied with Greene County at 7, Coosa’s football team rallied together and decided to put it all on the line to grab a playoff victory Friday night at Coosa in the opening round of the Class AA state playoffs.
The Coosa Eagles’ defense lives by one motto whenever it hits the football field:
CARROLLTON — Darlington’s girls placed three runners in the top 10 to grab a third-place team finish, and Model’s girls used a solid run from a freshman to help them finish eighth overall at the Class AA State Meet on Saturday afternoon.
CARROLLTON — Coosa overcame injuries to grab the Region 7-AA title Saturday, while Cedartown nailed their routine to grab the Region 5-AAA Title in competitions at West Georgia.
While the playoff picture has cleared up a bit for most local teams, Pepperell, Cedartown and Rockmart have to wait until Monday to resolve the logjam for the final two playoff spots from Region 5-AAA.
An individual state title, a seventh-place team finish and solid runs from local runners highlighted the day for local boys teams at the Class AA State Meet Saturday afternoon.
Coosa and head coach Todd Wheeler wanted to make a statement before the state playoffs.
