Congratulations to Miller Grove High School’s boys and girls Varsity basketball team as they advance to the Final Four of the AAAA State Playoffs. The Lady Wolverines dominated Rome HS in the “Elite 8” and beat the Wolves 67-38 to qualify for the fourth round. Point guard Katie Hunt led all scorers with 18 points, followed by Tashi Thompson and Tabitha Fudge who both scored 15 points each. This is the first semi-final appearance for the girl’s and they are loaded and ready to make a run for their first state championship. They Lady Wolverines take on Alcovy HS on Wednesday, March 7 at 7:00pm at the Gwinnett Arena.
Unlike the Lady Wolverines, this will be the fifth straight semi-finals appearance for the MGHS Men’s Varsity basketball team. Defeating Marist 60-51, the Wolverines clenched another round of the state playoffs, getting one step closer to gaining their fourth state title in a row. Senior guard Justin Colvin led all scorers with 16 points for the Wolverines and UGA signee Brandon Morris chipped in 15. The Wolverines will face Jonesboro HS after the Lady Wolverines on Wednesday with tip-off beginning at 8:30pm.
Go! G-O! GO WOLVERINES GO!
