Water Valley didn’t have an easy draw in the third annual O-Zone Classic 7-on-7.
Playing in Group 3, the Class 3A school had the tough task of competing against larger schools like 4A Lafayette, 5A Saltillo and 6A schools Horn Lake and Southaven.
After running the table on Friday and earning a perfect 4-0 record, the Blue Devils went home early Saturday with an 0-2 showing in the double elimination portion of the tournament.
Despite losing to Saltillo 24-23 and Southaven 26-13, WVHS head coach Brad Embry said he was proud with his team’s 4-2 showing on the weekend. (June 18, 2012, Page 7)
