KINGSTON-For the second time in four years, the Cocke County High School Fighting Cocks are the champions of the Midway Christmas Classic.

Cocke County took home their second title at the Midway tournament since 2009 with a 65-43 win over Class AA Anderson County High School on Saturday evening. The 22-point margin of victory allowed the Fighting Cocks to claim the tournament title by winning their three games by an average of 18.6 points per game.

The three straight wins improves Cocke County's record to 8-7 on the season, as they picked up wins in the tournament over Monterey on Thursday and then picked up a 64-40 win over Portland High School on Friday night.
