The Demetrius King-coached Spalding High girls basketball team made school history Saturday by becoming the first basketball team — boys or girls — in the modern era of the school to win a state playoff game when it topped Crisp County 56-46.
Now the Lady Jags (21-6) have another milestone starring them in the face when they take off to play a second-round Class AAA state playoff game at No. 2-state ranked Washington County (25-2) in Sandersville, Ga., 7 p.m., Wednesday.
With one more win the Lady Jags can tie the team record for wins, 22, against six losses set during the 2003-04 season when the Lady Jags were coached by Jared Griffis.
No easy road: The winner of the Spalding-Washington County game Tuesday will likely have its hands full in the next round.
That’s because the winner will take on the Kendrick-Peach County winner this weekend at Columbus State University in the Sweet 16.
While Peach County is 16-8, No. 1-state ranked Kendrick sports a 28-0 record.
STATE PLAYOFF TICKETS: Tickets to Wednesday’s game cost $7, as set per the Georgia High School Association’s by-laws.
Every round after Wednesday will cost $10 per ticket.
