Wolverine Girls and Boys Basketball Teams Win Region Titles – Make Program History
The Wolverine basketball teams, both girls and boys, made history by winning the Region 8A Championship on the same day versus the same school opponent.
Both teams competed on Saturday against Athens Academy in the Region 8A Finals. The Lady Wolverines won 38-31 earning their second region title in program history. The Wolverines won 40-38 earning their first region title in program history. This is also the first time in PACS Athletics that both Girls and Boys Basketball teams have played in Region Finals on the same day. Both teams winning a victory made the day even more special.
Prince Athletic Director and Head Coach of the Lady Wolverines, Richard Ricketts, expressed the excitement and pride he felt for the students and school. “I will never forget my feeling as I watched both teams win Region Championships. Seeing the parents, fellow students, and supporters’ excitement at the conclusion of both games is what high school sports is all about. Both teams have worked extremely hard and showed what playing together can achieve.”
The Wolverine teams get a bye in the first round of State Tournament play. The games and times for the second round are TBD.
