Christian Heritage School senior wide receiver Nich Bartley sits on the sidelines after catching a touchdown pass from Trevor Brown for the final points of the Lions’ 41-17 loss at Darlington on Friday night in the opening round of the Class A private school state playoffs. The Lions, who were in the Georgia High School Association postseason for the first time, had trouble from the start against the Tigers, who narrowly beat Christian Heritage during the regular season in Dalton.
