A strong showing in the DCSD Middle School County Track Meet propelled the Tucker Middle School Tiger Athletics’ program to a second consecutive DCSD All-Sports Award trophy in 2019.
The Tigers won the boys’ track title and the girls finished a strong fifth to help Tucker to a three-point edge (92-89) over Stephenson for the All-Sports Award. Tucker won the award in 2018 with an 87-84 win over Chapel Hill. The Tigers became the fifth program to win two titles and the first to win it two consecutive years.
A county runner-up finish in football and division titles in football and boys’ basketball aided Tucker’s repeat atop the All-Sports standings.
Stephenson which won the award in 2010 and 2012 finished second for the second time. The Jaguars boys’ basketball team won its division and the county championship while the girls finished second in the county basketball tournament. The Jaguars football team won its division.
Henderson came in third, its highest finish in the 12-year history of the Middle School All-Sports Award, with 79 points. Henderson’s first Top 3 finish was in part due to a region title in girls’ basketball and a third place finish overall in the county championship. The Cougars two track teams both finished third in the county track championships to contribute to third place.
Salem finished in the Top 5 of the All-Sports standings for just the second time, the last was fifth in 2016, as the Lions slipped past Champion 68.5-67. Salem’s 15-2 record, division title and county runner-up finish in boys’ basketball and a 13-2 record and division title in girls’ basketball were keys to the program’s finish this year.
Champion’s fifth place finish was paced by winning the division title and the county title in girls’ basketball.
