Bulldogs have strong showing in Old Capital Classic



“We’re fortunate enough to win,” Lunsford said. “It was a great event, and things went well. What jumps out to me is that it was an event sponsored by our girls and boys. It’s great community involvement.”

Leading the charge for the Bulldogs was Troy Campfield with 21 points, 13 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals and 4 blocks.

Coming off an injury earlier in the season, Dalton Threatt hit his marks on Saturday, finishing as the second leading scorer with 14 against the B.E.S.T. Academy and downing 4 three-point shots in the contest.

Unfortunately, the girl’s team was slated to play Coretta Scott King in the tournament, but due to scheduling differences the game was cancelled.

Despite the cancellation of the girl’s game, Lunsford believes the overall event is one of which the school should be proud.

“The main thing is that it’s an event that brings a lot of things together at GMC,” he said. “It’s something we feel like that adds to our total program.”

GMC Prep will look to continue its momentum on Friday night at home as they take on neighboring Putnam County, with all of the action beginning at 4:30 p.m. in the Cordell Events Center.
