Middle school roundup: Westside beats Bagley in tight 8th-grade championship

Westside Middle School’s eighth-grade boys basketball team won 52-49 Saturday against Bagley to claim the North Georgia league championship in coach Bob Campbell’s final game coaching the Bagley Braves.

Campbell, who was honored last month, has coached at Bagley for 25 seasons and has won more than 350 games. Saturday’s tilt against Westside was his last as he resigns from coaching the team, along with the seventh-grade boys. The teams were tied 13-all when the first quarter ended, and Westside (16-2) built a 26-24 halftime lead and 40-31 cushion entering the final quarter, but Bagley (11-3) battled back.

This was the third game between the teams, as Westside won the first two by 20 and 24 points. This Westside roster also won the seventh-grade league title a year ago. Luke Shiflett led Westside with 22 points, while Luke Neely added 16 points.

Wayland James’ 27 points, including five 3-pointers, led Bagley.
