The varsity boys finished their regular season as the #5 seed in the region and #13 in the GHSA Class A power rankings. The Trojans had a strong showing during the regular season, beating the reigning state champions, Wilkinson County, twice. Game two brought a 56-55 victory with the winning points coming on a three point play by Jimmy Marshall. The boys region tournament begins today and will be hosted by Aquinas High School in Augusta, GA. The Trojans will tip-off at 7:00 p.m. tonight against the Lincoln County Devils. Semi-final and final rounds of the region tournament will return to Stratford Academy on Friday, February, 10 and Saturday February, 11.
“After a long weekend off, the boys are coming into the game with two strong practices. We are entering a new part of the season at 0-0, so last week’s games do not matter anymore. Lincoln county is a good team, and the boys are ready to come out and compete to make it to the region championship,” commented Coach Jarvis Smith.
