It had to happen exactly how it happened.
Oak Hill Academy (6-5; 2-3) took care of business against Immanuel Christian 20-19.
Leake and Canton both won their games, and that not only secures a winning season for Oak Hill for the first time since 2006, but it puts them in the playoffs for the first time since 2009.
Congratulations to Coach Daniel Merchant, the players and the Oak Hill family. This is a truly great accomplishment.
