Region Basketball Tournament- Varsity Bucs vs. TBD (Boys) 
3:00PM Brentwoood Schools
           Scores and Highlights
The Lady Bucs have finished up the regular season with an 18-4 record and 9-3 in the Region. They finished tied with Augusta Prep for second place. A coin flip was held to break the tie and Prep won so they will enter the Region Tournament as the second seed and us as the third seed.
 
For the last week of the season the Lady Bucs defeated TJA 65-28, Gatewood 42-36, Glascock 49-25 and EBA 53-34. Kennedy Mosley leads the team with a 18.5 ppg average and leads in rebounding also with 8 rebounds a game. The 3 seniors Phoebe Brooks, Grace Bridges and Mattie Grae Cheely have shown great leadership leading the team not only in word but deed also. Finlay Florence rounds out the starting 5 and is a main reason for the team's success. Macie Mauldin, Emma Scott, Elizabeth Thigpen, Makenzie Parrish and Jaycee Stewart have added great contributions to the Team effort coming off the bench when needed. The Lady Bucs are ranked 5th in GISA "AA"  State rankings and will a host a first round State Tournament game on February 23rd. Opponent and time yet to be determined. But first up is the Region Tournament beginning on Tuesday Feb. 16 being hosted by Brentwood. We will play on Tuesday most likely at 5:00 against an opponent to be determined. Come support your Lady Bucs as they begin their quest for the Region and State Championships. GO LADY BUCS! - Coach Cain

The 5th grade 4-H club had seven children that participated in the District Project Achievement. The projects range from Cartoon Drawing to Horse Care.  The children spent several weeks researching topics of interest, then preparing their speeches and displays. Once the children were ready they had to videotape the presentation. The video was send to TeErika Leaks who is the the advisor for 4-H. She then submitted the presentation to the district committee for completion.
