CLASS 5A STATE CHAMPIONSHIP Jasper 3, Saint James 0

      Saint James (37-11), coached by Karen Lee, made its fourth straight appearance in the state finals – winning the title in Class 4A in 2017 and finishing runner-up in 2016 and 2015. The Trojans moved up to 5A this season.
    Jasper junior McKinley Ferguson had 14 kills and 10 digs to lead the Vikings. Her stellar play on offense and defense earned her the Class 5A state tourney MVP. Sophomore Alex Oliver had nine kills and 13 digs. She scored the final match point for her team. Setter Molly Kate Atkins added 34 assists and seven digs.
     Carson Ann Crow had a game-high 16 kills for Saint James. She also had nine digs. Setter Emily Osley had 15 assists and nine digs.

Brooks vs. Deshler Class 4A Battle is AHSAA/NFHS Network Game of the Week

     MONTGOMERY – The NFHS Network’s subscriber-based AHSAA School Broadcast Program has 72 events currently scheduled for October 11 through October 18 to be video live-streamed over its on-line platform. One varsity football game is set for tonight (James Clemens vs. Grissom) and 34 varsity football games are planned for Friday, October 12 – bringing the total on the NFHS Network to 223. Overall events, including volleyball, cross country and other special events, are approaching 600 already in this school year.

     Five varsity and two junior varsity volleyball matches are slated for tonight while one varsity football game and eight middle school contests are scheduled.
     This week’s AHSAA/NFHS Network Game of the Week is Deshler (4-3) at Brooks (5-1) at Killen Friday. Brooks High School will produce the game, which kicks off at 7 p.m., through its NFHS Network School Broadcast Program. Jacob Fowler is the executive producer.
     The Lions of Coach Brad Black are 3-0 in Class 4A, Region 8 averaging 40.1 points per game this season, which ranks eighth in Class 4A. Deshler (4-3), coached by Bo Culver, is 3-1 in Region 8. The Tigers are scoring 36.7 ppg and allowing 15.7, the best among the region schools.
    Deshler holds a 27-6 edge in the series, which was played annually from 1982 to 2015 with Brooks winning 31-28 in the ’15 game. The Lions moved to 5A in 2016, however, and the two teams did not meet in 2016 or 2017. Brooks dropped back to 4A in the current classification. Brooks was off last week after clawing from behind to post a thrilling 36-35 win over previously unbeaten Class 1A Mars Hill Bible. Deshler beat defending region champion Rogers 35-12 last week.
    Volleyball action continues to have a strong presence on the NFHS Network with 15 varsity matches tonight through next Thursday already posted on the NFHS Network schedule.   NFHS Network subscribers will have access to all the contests.
