BCHS Cross Country teams sweep Region 4-AA championship meet.

Though it was a nail-biter for the girls, both the BCHS boys and girls cross country teams continued their region championship streaks alive by winning the 4-AA title Tuesday afternoon in Cochran.  The girls edged Lamar County, 27 points for Bleckley, 28 for Lamar.  Ellen Powell won her third straight individual region title.

The boys had it a bit easier scoring 15 points, well ahead of second place Lamar County with 67.  Austin Cook won the individual region title.  Tuesday's championships were the girls 12th straight, ten straight for the boys.

Bleckley closes out their season November 8 at the AA State Cross Country Championships in Carrolton.

BCHS wins Mary Persons Bulldawg Cheer Classic.

It'd been over a month since Bleckley brought home a first place trophy from a cheerleading competition.  Partially due to injuries, the squad had struggled at times.  Saturday, BC had their best performance of the season in winning the AA division of the Bulldawg Cheer Classic hosted by Mary Persons High School.  All the stunts stuck, the only deductions coming from knees down during tumbling passes.

Bleckley will have a final tuneup before region November 1 at Union Grove High School.
