GHSA Girl's Class AAA Quarterfinal Game


Calvary Day 59, Dawson County 32

The Cavaliers led from tip-off to the final buzzer, leading by 20 at the end of the third quarter, and a milestone was achieved at the 3rd quarter buzzer. Senior point guard Hannah Cail made a shot that beat the buzzer and gave her 2,000 points for her career. This was just another highlight of the Cavalier's win.


Cail finished with 23 points, sophomore Destini Gooddine added 17 points, and the freshman Molly Smith scored 15 points on making five 3-point shots. 


Hamilton is stepping down as the Lady Cavilers coach since he held the position since 2005. Hamilton has been to the Final Four six times. In 2008, he led Calvary to the Class A state championship. It has been a memorable run for Jackie Hamltion.


Calvary Day (24-6) will face defending champion Lumpkin County (25-4) in a Final Four matchup set for 6 p.m. Friday at Fort Valley State.
