There are times when you attend a sporting event and you just know you are witnessing something special. It is either a dominant performance from an individual player, a team coming together as one or an atmosphere so electric you can literally feel it. Saturday night all three of these things happened as the Bartow Boy’s Basketball team (27-3) took on the Oak Ridge High School Pioneers (24-6) at The Hive.

The contest was for the Class 7A Region 2 Title. The winner of the game would secure a berth in the State Finals at the Lakeland Center. If Bartow won, it would be their third State Finals trip in the last five years under Jackets Head Coach Terrence McGriff. If Oak Ridge won, it would be their third trip in the last four years.
