Liberty County claims its first title in any sport in the school’s history with a win in the state final. The Panthers took five times to get over their semifinal hump, but in their first state final, the Panthers bring home a GHSA AAAA Title.
Auburn bound Davion Mitchell was held scoreless in the first half, but began to get into the flow of the game early in the third quarter. Mitchell would finish with 14 points. Georgia football committee Richard LeCounte led the Panthers with 20 points, including a key basket with 1:14 to go to give Liberty County a four point lead.
The Panthers finish at 28-1, with their only loss coming early in the season to Statesboro. Liberty County is led by 24 year old head coach Julian Stokes.
