RHHS and BCHS both had golf competitions Tuesday with the Wildcats losing to Calvary at Waterford Landing and the Redskins tying with MCA at Black Creek.
The RHHS boys and girls soccer teams continue to win. On Friday, in games versus Effingham County, both Richmond Hill teams beat Effingham County by easy margins.
