St. Pius X Completes Historic 2016-2017 Season

 

   It was a historic season on the hardwood for the Golden Lions. After losing 7 seniors and playing a challenging schedule, the young team began the season 6-5. However, the team continued to improve, and played their best basketball when it mattered the most. The Golden Lions caught fire and won 17 out of their last 18 games, including 13 straight wins. The group finished with 24 wins, captured the school's 3rd region championship, and went all the way to the state championship game for only the 2nd time in school history and first time since 1992! McCamish Pavilion at Georgia Tech was sold out with 8,700 in attendance in the state finals. It was a great year, and the team would like to thank seniors Carson Seramur, Will Lucado, and Conrad Schuh for their extraordinary leadership.

  • State Championship appearance for the 2nd time in school history
