Recently, I had the pleasure to welcome two groups from Columbus schools to Capitol Hill.
The first was the George Washington Carver High School Girls Basketball Team. Senate Resolution 446 recognized the George Washington Carver High School girls basketball team for an outstanding season. Head coach Anson Hundley led the team to their first Georgia High School Association (GHSA) championship game where they were named the 2017 GHSA State Runner-Ups. The team worked hard throughout their season ending with an impressive record of 26 to 6.
The second group was the Columbus High School Girls Basketball team. Senate Resolution 447 commended the Columbus High School girls basketball team for their accomplishment of playing in their first Georgia High School Association (GHSA) State Championship game. The Columbus High School girls basketball team and was named the 2017 GHSA AAAA State Champions with a final score of 69 to 67 ending the game in overtime. The Columbus High girls basketball team completed their season with a record of 25 to 5 under the leadership of head coach Joe Cherron.
