    I dnt understand why amory sports teams go un-noticed for on the field/court performance’s? I know amory kind of ruled the 90’s in both football and baseball winning multiple championships in both sports but what they are accomplishing on the court this year(boys) is something special especially for a school thats well know for its football and baseball programs.
