The Upson-Lee Knights hosted the Region 4 Team Duals on Saturday and nearly pulled off one of the biggest upsets of any team in Upson-Lee sports history. After the Knights had disposed of Spalding and Eagle’s Landing, Upson-Lee took on Locust Grove in the finals. The Wildcats, who are ranked in the top 5 of the state, went toe to toe with the Knights. Upson-Lee had a great showing in the match, which the Knights narrowly lost by a 38-33 score. However, as the Region 4 Runners-Up, Upson-Lee secured themselves one of 16 spots in the State Team Duals Meet next week. Look on 2B for a bracket of the tournament.
