The Bradley County Commission honored the Bradley Central High School Bearettes basketball team during its meeting Monday.
The Bradley County Commission honored the Bradley Central High School Bearettes basketball team during its session earlier this week.
The Bearettes, who clinched the TSSAA State Class AAA State Championship title in defeating Houston High School 46-44 on March 9 in Murfreesboro, were recognized by the County Commission and County Mayor D. Gary Davis.
Davis said a joint proclamation between Bradley County and the City of Cleveland was read on March 26 at the Cleveland City Council meeting. He invited Bearettes coach Jason Reuter to speak.
Reuter said he appreciates the commission honoring the Bearettes. He added the team has been honored by several groups but no governmental body is connected as closely to the Bearettes as the Bradley County Commission.
“What you see here is a lot of hard work,” Reuter said. “These young ladies are representing great families here in Bradley County.”
Reuter also noted the team’s average GPA is 3.8.
“They’re not just winners on the floor, they’re winners in the classroom,” he said. “It’s been quite an honor; it’s been quite a ride.”
Reuter also told the county commissioners, “we appreciate what you do for Bradley County Schools.”
