Sports

More than Just a Title

This week the Trojans will be playing against Foley in the County Championship. This is a huge deal for Daphne because Daphne Middle School has never won a County Championship EVER. Last year the 2014 team played Fairhope in the Championship and lost after a great season, so if Daphne wins this year it will be redemption for the team last year. Everyone on the team has worked so hard for their undefeated season and losing will be the worst way to end their perfect season. Foley is a great team and they were undefeated before they played Daphne, so this should be a good matchup and a great game. Everyone be sure to come and support your Trojans!!!!!!!!
