WYTHEVILLE –– George Wythe’s gym is notoriously a hot, stuffy place. But Friday night it was on fire for Galax.
After a slow start the Maroon Tide shot the lights out the rest of the night, particularly from long range, and cooked George Wythe 54-35 on the Maroons’ home floor to win the inaugural Conference 46 boys’ basketball championship.
Both teams advance to this week’s Region 1A West tournament. Galax (17-4) will host Narrows on Tuesday while George Wythe (14-10) travels to Radford.
