Tishomingo County suffocates Morton to claim first state title

Mar. 2—JACKSON — Tishomingo County had its second straight ugly start in Jackson on Saturday, but the Braves leaned on their defense and turned it on after that.

Tishomingo County shook off a first quarter that ended 4-2 in its favor and dominated Morton the rest of the way in a 37-17 win in Saturday's Class 4A state title game. For the first time in program history, the Braves are state champions.
