Eagles End Season 2nd in State
The Monitor High basketball Eagles have wound up the season as the second strongest Class B team in the state. They were barely nudged out last Saturday night by West Point High for the championship honor. . . . Saturday night saw the Eagles completely ineffective on their inside work, however, Wallace and Curtis Jackson were almost 100% accurate on their tosses from the outside. But it wasn’t enough and the Eagles had to settle for second place behind West Point, the new champion in Class B ball. The final score in the game was 62-54.

    Thanks to Danny Smith for providing us with the Red Devils’ school colors.

      Hi Dave. I’m the one who gave you the correct colors for West Point High School in Georgia. The confusion came when in the last few years they changed the name to Raiders, with different colors.
      The Red Devils were red and white as I stated.

      Thanks for the good work.

    On Harris County’s side: Consolidated into Harris County School System of Hamilton, Georgia.
    On Troup County’s side: West Point City School System was merged with Troup County School System of LaGrange, Georgia. TCHS is now serving students from West Point. West Point High School was folded into Troup County High School in LaGrange. TCSS merged all County Middle Schools in Southwestern Troup County to form Long Cane Middle School of LaGrange (which served students from West Point). West Point Elementary is now part of Troup County School System of LaGrange.

    I graduated West Point High school in 1984. We were the Raiders at that time. (Only Second team to go undefeated in regular season in school history) Our colors wer Red and Gold. I don’t know much about the The Red Devils though. But the School closed and consolidated into Troup 2 years later, maybe 3. There was an incident at West Point High where a student was shoot, it was voted to close the school and consolidate with Troup. Since then a Christian College, Point University has taken over the old West Point High school campus.
