HAWKS FINISH 2ND AT THE STATE TOURNAMENT IN COLUMBUS
What an exciting weekend of softball it was in Columbus, GA. The Hawks finished 2nd in the state, losing to North Gwinnett in the championship game in the stadium on Saturday. The Hawks opened up strong against Parkview, with a 4-0 victory. On Friday, the Hawks had a lead late in the game, however failed to close the deal and lost 4-3. After the defeat, the Hawks came SOARING back to win the next thre games and advance back into the state championship for the 2nd year in a row. However, they came up just short as they faced North Gwinnett again.
2016 AAAAAA STATE CHAMPIONS!!!
What an amazing three days in Columbus as the Lady Hawks secure their second state championship in school history. The Lady Hawks swept through the tournament going 4-0, with wins over Kennesaw Mountain (7-1), East Coweta (4-3 in 11 innings), and Brookwood twice (2-0 and 5-2). These girls are truly special and found a way to play their best ball of the year when it counted most. They won 10 straight games in the playoffs and accomplished something that only they knew could happen. We are so happy that we could send these seven amazing seniors out with saying that they never lost their final game as a Hawk!
Now it is time to enjoy this accomplishment and soon get back to work on defending that state championship in 2016!
