The 7-8 Braves basketball team Coached by Sammy Marsh completed a rare perfect season this morning after defeating Bremen 17-6 at the Heard Co. Recreation Department.

The team finished with a 10-0 record after dominating every opponent along the way. In fact, Marsh’s squad only trailed once all season when Tallapoosa scored first and took a 1-0 lead,but that lead would be short-lived as the Braves came back to demolish them 27-2.

Offensively this season the Braves were led by Alex Boyd, Ayden Cannon, and Drew Cornelius while on the defensive end Leroy Marsh and Ty “Smooth” Smith kept the opponents at bay.

Several of the players will move on to the all-star team which will begin district play soon. “I am really proud of all the kids… they kept the focus all year and never stopped working hard. We are very proud of our undefeated season,” said Coach Marsh after the game.
