At East Jackson High School in Commerce over the weekend, it was the White County girls and Commerce boys that stole the show at the 10th Annual Eagle Invitational.
Of our local programs, Commerce, Tallulah Falls, and White County all took part. Tons of individuals found great success, but the White County Lady Warriors had plenty of individual 1st-place finishers in their respective events, as did the Commerce Tigers. White County girls won the meet, while TFS girls (7th) and Commerce (9th) finished accordingly. The boys saw Commerce finish as runner-up, White County 4th, and Tallulah Falls 9th.
