    Andy is the record that you posted for Oak Ridge 29 – 9 correct. There is no way these High School kids played 40 games?

  • Andy said,

    40 games is what we are talking about and that is right where they want to be, on par with Oak Hill and next year, Oak Ridge is planning to beat Oak Hill…..

    From Friday at Myrtle Beach:

    Krestrel Heights 65,

    Oak Ridge Military 58, OT

    Jay Canty and Chris McCain led Oak Ridge with 18 points but feel short in the semi-finals of the Reebok National Championships in Myrtle Beach. The Cadets wrap up their season in the third-place game today(Saturday) at 1:00

  • No way said,

    Andy how are these kids able to play so many games. No high school team in the area play that many games. Is that legal? Does that mean local schools will start playing better talent, or will they lose kids to Oak Ridge?

    Private school. Don’t mean that in a bad way. But private schools can play more games as long as they are not in a public school conference, such as Bishop McGinness.
