St. Pius X Completes 2015-2016 Season
It was another banner year for the St. Pius X basketball program. The team finished 24-7 which marks the 3rd straight year with 24 or more wins and the 4th straight season with at least 20 wins and a deep state tournament run. The senior class tied a school record with 49 wins over a two-year period. In the state tournament, the Golden Lions made a run to the state AAAA Elite Eight at Fort Valley St. University where their season ended against a great Jonesboro team. For the first time in 25 years, the Golden Lions claimed the state's top spot in the polls at one point this season. Coach Parr would like to thank the 7 seniors for leaving a memorable legacy with St. Pius X basketball.
