2019-2020 Basketball Team makes another trip to the "Final Four"

It was a great season for the 19-20 St. Pius X Varsity team. After coming off a 26 win season in 18-19, the team graduated 10 seniors and expectations were low in the Atlanta basketball community. After getting off to a slow start and sitting at 5-4, the Golden Lions started to find their stride. The team got on a role after Christmas, securing a #1 seed in the region tournament and defeating all major rivals. Once tournament time started, the Golden Lions played their best basketball! St. Pius X won their 4th consecutive regional championship over North Oconee, then advanced past Pickens County and West Laurens in the first two rounds of the state tournament, setting up a show down with 29-0 Americus-Sumter in the "Elite Eight". In the best game ever witnessed in Mark Kelly Gymnasium, in front of a sold out crowd, St. Pius X was able to knock off Americus-Sumter 73-70 in Double Overtime to advance to their 3rd Final Four in the last four years. The Golden Lions saw their season come to an end in the Final Four, losing to Cross Creek out of Augusta, 51-36.
