Friday was a good day for Bleckley County High School cross country.  The boys won their second straight state title, the girls their first at the state championship meet in Carolton.  It was the first time both the boys and girls team of any sport had won state titles on the same day in school history.

Carl Ellis Corley defended his individual state title for the boys.  Macy Moe finished third for the girls. Though the teams didn't make it back in time to be recognized during Senior Night held before the final football game versus Southwest, they came onto the field at halftime to the cheers of the crowd.
