5 THINGS TO KNOW
1. Bubblers burst onto the scene
Boiling Springs had gone four straight seasons without a winning record after a 6-5 campaign in 2015. The Bubblers went without a victory in 2016, 2017 and 2019, but they broke out in a big way in 2020, finishing the shortened regular season with a 4-1 record, outscoring opponents by a combined score of 179-54, and earning their first district playoff berth since back-to-back appearances in 2014 and 2015.
