Region Cheating
December 20, 2013
Congrats Marietta on a great start to your season. Unfortunately, I have to comment on McEachern's girls team illegally recruiting players so Cobb Schools and the GHSA don't try to sweep the their investigation under the rug. Keep working hard other teams who don't cheat. McEachern will eventually pay for their cheating!
