This past Saturday, the Lady Wolves basketball program got to honor one of their own as senior Tate Walters was recognized for scoring 1000 points in her career as a Lady Wolf.
Tate has achieved many honors while wearing the Kelly and Gold of Buford such as being part of three state championships, Gwinnett Super Six, Region Player of the Year, All Metro 1st Team, but this was special because we got to recognize her in front of her home fans.
We appreciate all the hard work and commitment Tate has shown during her high school career here at Buford and we wish her nothing but the best as she closes out her last season for the Lady Wolves before donning the purple and white of Furman University.
Congrats Tate, WE LOVE YOU!!
