2 Carroll seniors sign sports scholarships

CARROLL COUNTY, Ga. -- Two talented seniors at two Carroll County high schools have signed scholarships to play college basketball.

Whitney McClure, who attends Bowdon High School, will play for West Georgia Technical College.

"Whitney is a dynamic player. She was able to be very successful in her career here at Bowdon in a position that requires toughness but, more than anything, unselfishness," Bowdon High assistant basketball coach Marci Brown said in a statement. "She was able to earn the players' and coaches' trust. Without that, your team is left vulnerable. She accepted that role and thus we had a Sweet Sixteen appearance this year. She is much grounded, and her ability to keep the game in perspective will be an asset at the next level."

Villa Rica High School student Rhianna Warren will play for Savannah State University in the fall.

Temple Tigers small but tough and definately real troopers

I want to tell you about a great high school band here in Temple, Ga. They are under the direction and leadership of Mr. Corey Newton.

Some may not even know where Temple, Ga. is located so let me tell you. We are a small town in West Ga. located about 10 miles from Carrollton, Ga. 7miles from Bremen, Ga. and 7 miles from Villa Rica, Ga. We recently made the news when Soldier Boy got arrested here. Last year we made the news when a terrible accident happened killing one of Temple High School's football players. About 2 years ago we made the news when Temple Middle school had some boys play fighting in the restroom and others vidoed it on their cell phones and sent it to another tv station. While bad things have happened here in Temple there are many good things happening as well.
