The Appalachian Eagles took home the 2017 title. Who will win the battle of the schools this year?

Anything Goes 2018 is set for Friday, May 11, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Blount County – Oneonta Agri-Business Center. Teams from all eight county and city high schools will compete in various team relays (including the “thang”), a wheelbarrow race, tire flip, egg toss, and tug of war. Event number one, ticket sales, is happening now. You can purchase advance tickets at your high school office for $5; tickets at the door will be $7.

All proceeds from this event benefit the Danny B. Hicks Memorial Scholarship fund. Formed in 2010 to provide scholarships to graduating seniors from Oneonta and Blount County schools in memory of Hicks, the non-profit organization has awarded 176 scholarships totaling $225,000. The annual golf tournament held in late summer or fall adds to the fund as well.

Don’t miss this evening of camaraderie and friendly competition.
