The Tallulah Falls Middle School boys basketball team started summer conditioning at the Mountain Madness Basketball Camp held in Young Harris.

According to coach Tom Tilley, 12 teams were invited to play with middle school teams from North Carolina and Georgia. Each team played a series of 40-minute games over two days, averaging six games a day. The TFS team finished 5-1.

“The boys dominated, using togetherness, intensity and a physical man-to-man defense,” Tilley said. “I am very proud of our effort.”

Teams traveled from Robbinsville, Andrews and Murphy in North Carolina and from Fannin and Towns counties in Georgia.
