For the sixth year in a row, the Holy Innocents’ girls’ basketball is heading to the state finals. The Bears earned their bid in more than dominating fashion Saturday at North Georgia University, blowing past Calvary Day (27-4) of Savannah 70-30.
In the Calvary victory, it was balance that got the job done, as eight players scored – three in double figures. Marya Hudgins led with 13 points; Jada Farrell followed with 12; and Jillian Hollingshead added 10. Charlsie Birkel and Rachel Suttle chipped in nine each, while Cierra Foster scored eight. The Bears advance to the title with a (25-6) record.
With the victory, Coach Nichole Dixon’s squad will meet the Wesleyan Wolves in a championship game for the 5th consecutive time. This will mark the 6th time in a row the Lady Bears have played for a championship, with their record in those games sitting at (1-4) in the previous 5. The Lady Bears are looking to flip the script this year.
