Back to back!



With a pair of victories last week in Birmingham, the Oneonta Lady Redskins capped off an amazing run of back-to-back 4A titles. Oneonta handled Charles Henderson 55-28 in the semifinals and then beat Calera 51-39 in the championship game at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex. Over the last four years, Oneonta compiled a record of 134-17 with two Northwest Region titles and a pair of state titles. Oneonta’s Destiney Elliott had 29 points and 14 rebounds against Charles Henderson and 20 points and 18 rebounds against Calera to claim Final 48 MVP honors for the second year in a row. She was joined on the all-tournament team by Maddie Boyd and Abby Blackwood. – Rob Rice
