White a positive influence on and off the mat for BCHS.

Bleckley County High School competition cheerleader Calli White in many ways is like other members of the squad. She loves her family, hanging out with friends, and has a boyfriend.  But White had to overcome an obsticle most don't to become a cheerleader.

She made the squad as a freshman with just one eye.  White lost her right eye due to cancer almost 11 years ago. Despite that loss, she made the squad and went from being an alternate to on the mat.  White also has a heart for others, especially those who may be different.

Wednesday, she won the statewide Positive Athlete Georgia Most Positive Cheerleading Athlete Award.  To read more about her, including thoughts from her head coach Heather Davis, click here.

History made: BCHS tennis teams sweep state title matches.

History made: BCHS tennis teams sweep state title matches.

For 26 years, Bleckley head tennis coach Brad Sanders has put great boys and girls tennis teams on the court.  Teams that won multiple region titles.  But in those 26 years, none had ever played for a state title.  Many of those years, each team would fall short in the semifinals.

That streak was broke this week as the girls won a neutral court match against Berrien High School and the boys defeated Thomasville in Thomasville to claim state championship berths.  Saturday, they would, as Sanders later said at an impromptu celebratory pep rally held on the courthouse square, "finish the job."

BCHS swept the state tennis championships.  The girls won 3-0 against Screven County.  The boys won 3-2.
