We finish up in the pool of all places. Hidden Valley and Cave Spring battled in the water as well as on the hoop court last night. Over at the Gator Aquatic Center, the Cave Spring girls took care of Hidden Valley by a score of 100 to 70, while the Titan boys turned the tables, winning 106 to 34. (------------)
