After his team lost to Apalachee back on Jan. 9, Winder-Barrow High School coach Eli Connell couldn’t shake the defeat from his mind.
It ate away at him. All he could do was look at the calendar for the next meeting.
As game week arrived for the rematch, however, the Bulldogg coach decided to downplay the contest to his players somewhat. Connell focused instead on Friday’s game with Madison County, which WBHS also won.
