BCHS Wins Region 3-AA Cheerleading Championship

BCHS Wins Region 3-AA Cheerleading Championship

The Bleckley competition cheer squad took the mat at Saturday's Middle Georgia Region Cheer Championships at a bit of a disadvantage. 

One of their squad members had suffered a dislocated kneecap late in the week. 

However, she would competed anyway. 

The Royals stuck all their stunts, and benefitted from adding in tumbling during the week as they had what fans felt was one of their best performances of the season. 

3-AA was the first of three regions that competed Saturday at Mercer's University Center.  Competition had began about 1 p.m.  Around 4 p.m, it was time for results.  3-AA was read first.  4th place: Southeast Bulloch.  3rd place: Screven County.  Region runner-up: Dodge County. 

Then, PA announcer Tren Hester said words that sent the Bleckley squad and supporters into a joyous frenzy.

Bleckley was held to 109 total yards, 43 rushing, and gave up 243 rushing yards in a 35-0 home loss Friday to Jefferson County.  JCHS scored 14 points off of two Royal interceptions.  The loss ends BC's four-game win streak.  It also means BCHS will be the fourth seed in the upcoming state playoffs. 

The Royals play at Lamar County (4-AA #1 seed) November 11.  Bleckley and Lamar have split their last two meetings with the Royals overcoming a 13-0 deficit to win 27-19 in Barnesville in 2010 and falling at home to the Trojans 27-21 this year.

Over the past three weeks, Bleckley's offense had been carrying the day.  They'd scored 30 or more points in each of those games.  However, a nasty Dodge defense combined with multiple injuries (Zack Moe was limited due to a deep thigh bruise, Frankie Mullis was recovering from a hip pointer, Mario McClendon was out with a sprained ankle, Tavon Ross played with an injured thumb) made for a defensive, turnover-filled first half.  BCHS had four first-half turnovers, Dodge three.
