A night of basketball….

Published by at 9:52 pm under basketball,greene,mchs

It started with the varsity girls taking on the Lady Dragons of William Monroe.  After being down 10-4 at the end of the first quarter, the Lady Mountaineers rallied to take the lead at half time with a score of 20-19.  They couldn’t hold on though, as William Monroe came back to win the game 48-28.

The girl’s game was followed by a ceremony honoring the 1977 Group A Boy’s State Championship team.  This is the first, and only, boy’s basketball team to win a State Championship in Madison.  Each team member was named and lined up at center court.  Then Cara McCurry and David Falk (both with fathers on the team) unvieled a 4’x8′ team photo that will hang in Wetsel gym.  (John Stubblefield of Stubblefield Photo in Charlottesville did the photo by scanning an 8×10 print and did a super job of making the enlargement!)

Harris Shifflette

Walter Strother, who led the Mountaineers in the State Championship game with 23 points.

And all of that was followed by the boy’s varsity game with William Monroe.  Just like the last game at Orange, Madison never trailed during this game and came away with a 69-59 win.  High scorer for the Mountaineers was Matt Garr with 17,  followed by David Falk with 14.  Jerel Carter and Logan Terrell were also in double figures with 13 each.
