BCHS had one last tuneup before region competition Saturday, traveling to the Ultimate Grand Cheer Championship hosted by Union Grove High School.  It wasn't about competing, rather, Saturday provided a day of experience and anaylsis.  Head coach Heather Davis could see if any last minute changes needed to be made before region.  The squad faced tougher judging similar to what they'll encounter in the final two weeks.

Region will be at the University Center on Mercer University's campus November 8.  Several regions besides 4-AA as well as the Class A public school sectionals, are set for that day.  It starts at 10 am.
