The Middle School Girls’ Basketball Team and Coaches Mark Walker and Princeton White continue their special season as they prepare to play in the GICAA state championship game this Saturday (Feb. 10) in Macon against Westminster Christian Academy (Watkinsville). The game will be played at Central Georgia Technical College at 11 AM.
The girls earned their trip to the state championship with three impressive wins in the sectional games played in Milner this past week. On Monday, they beat a very good Central Christian (Sharpsburg) team by two points thanks to a three-pointer from Joy Kendrick in the final minute of the game. Then they turned around and beat host Rock Springs Christian Academy 23-16 to move to the Final Four. Finally on Saturday, they won a hard fought game against a very talented Harvester Christian team from Douglasville near Atlanta by a score of 28-26. The win brings their record to 11-1 with their only loss of the season coming on the road at Brookwood School.
Please pray for their effort and performance as they prepare for the big game this week!
Members of the team include:
7th graders: Arabella Davidson, Mallory Holmes, Anna Kroll, Caroline Orr, Maggie Roberts, Sydney Sanders, Audrey Skidmore, Mikayla White
8th graders: Caroline Dougherty, Ally Flynt, Joy Kendrick, Kyla Raven
