Often undersized and out-skilled, the speed of the “Little Giants” defeated five teams in three days. After outscoring the host school Lafayette 18-15 in the final, the BHS team cemented their place in Monroe County history. A special presentation about this historic season by Roger F. Robison will begin at 6:00 PM.
