Congratulations to the Susan Moore junior varsity girls, Locust Fork junior varsity boys, Locust Fork varsity girls, and Appalachian varsity boys for their Blount County Championship victories Saturday. It’s been an exciting season of basketball and we wish all of our teams the best of luck as they begin area tournament play next week.

With the forecast calling for inclement weather early Tuesday morning, we had to make the call to go to press Monday afternoon. We look forward to bringing you full coverage of 2018 Blount County Basketball Tournament action next Wednesday.
