Schools claim North Channel football titles

Barbers Hill Middle South’s Josiah Herndon, 88, outruns Cedar Bayou’s Ulises Hernandez, 44, in his team’s 22-13 win. The victory propelled North to the North Channel 8A football title.

The Barbers Hill Middle School South football team clinched the 8A title last week with a 22-13 win at Cedar Bayou.

Cedar Bayou’s 8B team did get some level of revenge as it wrapped that title with an 8-6 win over North. Dayton won the 7A and 7B titles with wins against Horace Mann.

“Our team played really well,” BH North coach John Brown said of the 8A win. “Everyone contributed to the win. Cedar Bayou has a really talented team and is well coached. I am very proud of our team’s effort.”

Cedar Bayou coaches were pleased with the overall finish of its eighth-grade program.

Cedar Bayou has created a culture of winning throughout all of our boys athletic programs,” Cedar Bayou coach Christopher Haney said. “This is what has helped this team win a district championship and our 8th grade to be 13-1 overall so far this season.  It is the expectation to come in every day hungry and ready to work hard towards a championship.  We had the top boys program in the district last year for the first time in a while and we plan on keeping that title for a long time.”  

The North Channel junior school league is ready to wrap up its football and volleyball seasons this week and some other titles are still on the line.

It is also rivalry week so the excitement should be at a fever pitch as the seasons come to an end.

Following is a recap of last week’s results and a look ahead at week six action.
