The Georgia Kings 8th grade team traveled to Columbia, SC last weekend to compete in the Annual Battle of the South.
Although they competed against some very tough teams from all over the Southeastern U. S., they managed to obtain a tournament record of 5 - 1 and averaged a 24 point margin of victory.
"The boys played intense, hard-nosed basketball and accomplished their victories with tenacious man-to-man defense and owned the boards averaging 30 rebounds per game" said Coach Bryan Morris. "The Georgia Kings organization should be proud of the boys' efforts and the way they represented themselves and the Georgia Kings organization".
The Georgia Kings 8th grade team lost in the championship game by only 6 points after having made a courageous comeback in a game late the night before.
