Cal­houn han­dles LFO in 6-AAA ti­tle game

The Catoosa County News - - SPORTS - Staff re­ports

One day, a team will rise up and fi­nally de­throne the Cal­houn Yel­low Jack­ets as re­gion cham­pi­ons.

Then again, maybe a team won’t.

No. 1-ranked and de­fend­ing Class AAA state cham­pion Cal­houn set a new GHSA state record on Fri­day night with an 18th con­sec­u­tive re­gion ti­tle in a 49-0 shutout of LFO.

The War­riors had come to Phil Reeve Sta­dium look­ing to pull the shocker, but in­stead be­came the lat­est re­gion op­po­nent stung by the Jack­ets, who have not lost a game to a re­gion foe since a 14-7 home loss to Dar­ling­ton on Oct. 19, 2001 - a streak which now sits at 120 and count­ing.

LFO’S Brax­ton Jones grabs Cal­houn’s Zack Fuller as James Bed­ding­ton moves in to as­sist on the stop. The War­riors will open the Class AAA state play­offs at home this Fri­day against North Hall.
