MACON, Ga. (AP) -- Reggie Middleton and Shawn Allen each scored
18 points to lead Glenn Hills to a 64-57 win over Carver-Columbus
in the Class AAA boys championship game on Saturday night.
Glenn Hills (29-2) claimed its first boys title in the 40-year
history of the school. The girls basketball team had been crowned
champs in 2002.
The Tigers (22-10) cut the lead to 59-55 with 1:09 remaining in
the fourth quarter on a layup by Carlos Ross. But Shawn Allen hit
two free throws to push Glenn Hills ahead by six points.
Jarvis Jones scored 23 points for Carver-Columbus, which was
attempting to become the first school since Clinch County in 1999
to win a football and basketball title in the same school year.
