In a battle for bragging rights in the city of Savannah, the Beach High girls basketball team defeated Johnson High 59-44 on March 9 in Athens for the GSHA state AAA championship.
Beach (29-2) scored the first nine points of the game and led 16-5 at the end of the first quarter and 30-13 at the half.
The Bulldogs led by as many as 28 points in the game before SCJ (27-3) closed their gap to 15.
The win was Beach’s second state title. Their first championship trophy came 17 years ago.
Hats off to both programs.
