The evening was kicked off at 6:30 by the Master of Ceremony Kelly Radcliff, welcoming was done by Lorina Hartshorn, and in- vocation by MacKenzie Langman (who was one of the honored ath- letes of the evening). Then it was off to the commons area at Gilmer County High School for a covered dish dinner. The food was very good and it didnt take long for it to disapear. At around 7:30 it was back into the gymnasium for a very educa- tional and inspiring speech by GSC Girl's Basketball "head coach Steve Harold. Following his speach was the awards presentations. Awards were handed out to all partici- pants by the coaches of each re- spective sport. Jessica Ball was the Cheerleading coach, Willard Wright/Cross Country, Joe Dennison/Football, Cindy Szabo/ Volleyball, Mickey Metz/Boy's Basketball, Bill Turner/Gid's Bas- ketball, and Bernadette Bamberger/Boy's and Girl's Track. One of the highlights of the night came immediatly after the awards. Special guest speaker former GCHS coach Damon West was pressed for time but still man- aged to tell a hilariously enter- mining story about track. The 1 st Annual Gilmer County High School Mini-Titan Banquet was a great success. The night was then ended with closing re- marks by Ellen Wilson.

This two-day, 72 hole event was packed with some of the best youth golfers in the state.
