       No team at Shoals Christian ever lost more games in a season than the eight they lost last year. The last time they lost as many was back in 2008.

       Shoals Christian was inconsistent offensively last year and that needs to pick up if the Flame want to be competitive. They only averaged 16.8 points a game.
