Lithia Springs Lady Lions

Basketball-Girls-Varsity Main Page Image

 Welcome to the Lady Lions Basketball team page.  We are very proud of our accomplishments over the last 6 years!  The Lady Lions have been to 8 state tournaments in school history, 4 of them coming in the last 5 years!  We have had several young ladies go on to play college ball and many others chose to pass on the opportunity to play ball at the next level in order to focus on academics.

As for the state of the program, we won 20 games in 2012-13 including a sub region title and a victory in the 1st round of the GHSA state tournament.  We qualified for state again in 2014-15, falling 9 points short of winning the region championship.  The 2015-16 team became the 1st back to back state tournament qualifier in school history with a 45-40 victory over county rival New Manchester in the region tournament quarter finals.  The 2016-17 team overcame an array of mid-season injuries to reach the region title game before falling short to 7th ranked Maynard Jackson.  The 16-17 squad went on to defeat Loganville in the 1st round of state before losing to 9th ranked Eagle's Landing in the sweet 16.  Back to back to back state tournaments!  Great Job Ladies!  

Our program is grounded in the fundamentals of the game and doing the right thing off the court.  Academics and behavior are monitored year round by Coach Mills.  The expectation of all girls is to do their best in the classroom, in the halls, and on the court!  We don't believe in settling for less than our best.  Our schedule is located at www.maxpreps.com if you are interested in catching some action this season.

If getting involved in a winning tradition is exciting to you, be prepared to be at the 2017-18 tryouts that begin on October 30th.  You must be academically eligible and have a current and complete athletic physical on file BEFORE you can tryout.  See Coach Mills in A209 if you have any questions.
