Uplift Titans Win State Basketball Championship

In an absolute nailbiter tonight, the Uplift Titans defeated the St. Teresa Bulldogs (from Decatur) to win the Division 2A State Title.  The score went back and forth several times, but the Titans ended up winning by the score 53-47.

Congratulations to Coach David Taylor and to the players, all of whom had us cheering at the TV at different times during the very tense game.  Jeremy Roscoe was Player of the Game.

Wonderful job wrapping up a dream season.
