Baldwyn (18-13)-Resume VS 1A (13-5) Key 1A wins (Houlka by 4, Smithville by 15, Byers by 1, Pine Grove by 25, West Tallahatchie by 6), 1A losses (Biggersville by 13, Ingomar by 21, Smithville by 4, Ingomar by 22, Ingomar by 2), Other key wins (), They were a couple possessions away from sitting in that one spot with a Gold Ball. Would’ve been 13-2 in 1A if not for Ingomar. Flew under the radar all season and took advantage of the “easiest” road to the championships. Biggest win on the resume was beating Byers at Byers by 1 with 3 free-throws with no time on the clock.
  3. Coffeeville (22-8)-Resume VS 1A (11-3) Key 1A wins (Houlka by 3, Biggersville by 5), 1A losses (Biggersville by 9, Houlka by 6, Ingomar by 8), Other key wins (Houston by 2, Kosciusko by 2), The most dangerous team in 1A.

Lost at the wrong time of the year in division tournament to Pine Grove and at Coffeeville. Barely escaped Myrtle at home on game winner. Luck was on the side of Biggersville this year with OT thrillers and game winners. Luck didn’t make them the great team they were, it just helped in several key games.
  5. Shaw (23-11)-Resume VS 1A (17-2) Key 1A wins (West Tallahatchie by 15, West Tallahatchie by 11, West Tallahatchie by 8), 1A losses (Biggersville by 3 in double OT, Ingomar by 8), Other key wins (Cleveland Central by 14), Played with Ingomar and only lost to Biggersville by 3 in double OT on the road.
