SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Three Savannah high school basketball teams took home region titles Saturday night.
Calvary Day held on to beat rival Savannah Christian to claim the Region 3-A title, while the Woodville-Tompkins boys and girls teams swept the Region 2-AA titles.
The Cavaliers led the Raiders by 11, but had to force a turnover as time expired to win 45-42. After the game, Cavaliers head coach Jackie Hamilton says this was the title his team has worked so hard for this season.
“This was kind of our goal at the beginning of the year, to win the region championship. That was our first goal, and we’ve reached that," Hamilton says. "We’ve worked hard. We’ve learned a lot. We’re a pretty young team. You know, we kind of hung on. We made it interesting for everyone.”
In Vidalia, it was the Wolverines’ night.
The Woodville-Tompkins boys improved to 27-0 with a 59-46 win over Vidalia. The Wolverines will host Dublin in the first round of the state playoffs.
For the second time this year, the Wolverine girls did something no one else has done this year: beat Bryan County.
Woodville took down the Redskins 70-50 to claim the region title. The Wolverine girls will host Southwest-Macon in the first round of the state playoffs.
