Apalachee High School girls basketball coach Michael Parks doesn’t hide the fact his team is looking forward to Friday’s matchup with cross county rival Winder-Barrow.
“I would be lying if I said we haven’t discussed it,” Parks said. “With the quality players they have, we follow how they are doing. We want to see how we do against them. My girls want to show they are a quality team and a win against Winder-Barrow would help show that.”
This Friday’s basketball matchup is the latest athletic contest between the two schools. The girls will battle at 7 p.m. at WBHS followed by the varsity boys at 8:30 p.m. As is usually the case with the local rivalry, a large turnout of fans is expected.
