The CHS Girls Basketball team is the number 2 team in Region 7AA after losing to Rockmart on Saturday night. The girls played a great game but came up short in overtime with a 70-59 final score.
Chattooga, which was playing in its first region title game since 1988, was led by All-Region first team member Faith Ann Foster with 24 points including four 3-pointers and Regan Broome with 11 points and 3 3-pointers.
The game ended a fifty-plus-year drought for Rockmart. It was the first time since 1961 that the Rockmart Girls had taken home a state title.
The CHS Girls will be hosting Therell in state tournament action later this week.
