Morgan County Middle School hosted a D-League basketball tournament on Saturday, Jan. 16. The tournament was comprised of sixth and seventh grade boys and girls players. The Morgan County 6th/7th grade girls were titled 2016 D-League Champions, and the Carson Middle School girls were named runner-up. The MCMS 6th/7th grade boys played the Hancock Magic and the Warriors. The Bulldogs lost both of their games against the two very competitive teams. According to Coach Franklin, “I was pleased with how both 6th/7th grade teams played over the weekend. Even though they came up on the wrong end, I saw how much fight they had and never gave up throughout the entire game given the fact they were out matched in size. That’s one thing only the player can control…the fight they have in them no matter what the situation is!”
