Country Day wins a pair of region basketball titles

Sports

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Country Day High School had never won a regional title in both boys and girls basketball in the same year.

That streak ended Friday night.

Country Day’s boys basketball won the school’s first regional title since 1970 with a 54-32 victory against Savannah Christian Prep.

“We’re gonna host at home,” head coach Demetrius Smith said. “Hopefully a couple of rounds, all the way to the Final Four, I think we get to host. We get to play together on our home court and hopefully we get to make a deep run.”

The girls followed suit just an hour or two earlier, hanging on against Calvary Day to win 44-37.

“All teams in this region have battled injuries and COVID and quarantines,” said girls basketball head coach Amy Brooks. “For us to come together at the right time and put it all together with all 10 players ready to go is a really special moment.”
