Girls Basketball

Congratulations to the girls basketball team for making it to the sweet 16 of the GHSA state tournament with a win over Loganville last Friday night. While the girls fell short of advancing last night at Eagles Landing, they still put together a remarkable season.  Seniors Kiana, Ayanna, Anjelique, Madison, Destiny and Evelyn will be missed.  This group of seniors has been a part of multiple LSHS Lady Lion records during their time here. Great job ladies. Coach Mills would like to thank the administrators, teachers, and students who came out to support the lady lions.  It was great to have that Lion support in the stands!

Here is an excerpt from her winning short story "By the Grace of the Earth".

"Stevie is a girl who is forced to listen to the earth and its inhabitants, often without hesitation. With the weight of the world on her shoulders, Stevie faces natural disasters head on. As earthquakes rumble, she trembles. As droughts steal water from the earth, so do they from her body. When it comes time for Stevie to protect all she loves, she puts her trust in the earth to save what she cannot afford to lose."
