 2018 Summer Information

                                                St. Pius X Completes Historic 2017-2018 Season 

 

It was a another banner year for the 17-18 boys basketball program. The Golden Lions started out strong and never looked back, finishing with a record of 28-4, the best record in school history. Along the way, the team picked up wins in the Jared Cook Classic and Holiday Hoopsgiving showcase. They also won the St. Pius X Christmas Classic tournament championship, and won their 2nd consecutive region championship! The Golden Lions had another successful state tournament, making another run all the way to Georgia Tech for the state championship game. In the state's most anticipated match-up of the season, St. Pius X and our opponent, Upson-Lee, sold out McCamish Pavilion (8,600) for the second year in a row. Upson-Lee defeated SPX 70-54 in an uptempo game, but the legacy left by our six seniors, Everett Lane, Finn McCurdy, Jack Taube, Troy Stephens, Kennedy Willis, and Christian Mattei will be talked about for years to come.
