HANCEVILLE – Over the course of two Fridays, Cullman County’s high school and middle school scholars’ bowl tournaments were held at Wallace State in Hanceville.  Of little surprise to anyone, perennial powerhouse West Point took first place in both events, though the high school championship came down to a nail-biter against Good Hope–the undefeated regular season champion and only team to score a regular season win against WPHS in six years–that set off a heart rate alert on WPHS coach Lee Henry’s smart watch mid-match.
