The Lady Wolves "finished the drill" as they won their third straight state championship this past Friday night with a 67 to 59 win over previously unbeaten Villa Rica at the Macon Centerplex.
This win gives the Lady Wolves a 29-2 record for the season and puts them as one of the top teams in the state in any classification.
It was a thrilling game from the start with many lead changes and so many Lady Wolves making both defensive and offensive plays in all parts of the game.

The Lady Wolves will be back in their third straight state championship game this Friday as they take on the undefeated Lady Wildcats of Villa Rica.

We need a packed house of Kelly and Gold supporting these two programs as they chase Buford history in trying to win both the girls and boys titles.
Tell all your friends and family to come out and enjoy a Friday afternoon of great basketball as these young ladies and men continue to represent our school and community!

The Lady Wolves got off to a fast start grabbing a 8-0 lead in the beginning minutes of the 5A semi finals vs Veterans, but then they went ice cold and nothing seems to work or be in sync. It just seemed that it was one of those nights for the home team as they played in front of a great crowd in the last home game of the season. From players with cramping legs, to poor free throw shooting, to missed easy scoring opportunities, the Lady Wolves fought and clawed out a fifteen point win to advance them to the next round of the 5A tournament. At this point in the season, it is all about surviving and advancing and this seemed to be the story of the night for the girls in Kelly and Gold.
Tate Walters lead the scoring for the Lady Wolves with 23 points, while freshmen Tatum Ozment chipped in 13 points for the winning cause. Sara Viti added 11 points while connecting on three 3 point fields.
This win puts the Lady Wolves back into the "Final Four" and in the hunt for their third straight state championship.
