ATLANTA — Tri-Cities High School won its first state championship in school history when senior Da'Marcus Johnson heaved a 35-foot buzzer-beater to take down Tucker High School in Macon.

The Bulldogs defeated Tucker 46-43 in an emotional season for the community.

Former principal and Tri-Cities icon Herschel Robinson passed away in September. Head coach Omari Forts told 11Alive’s Wes Blankenship that the team played to honor “Doc” and his family this season.
