Westminster’s varsity boys basketball team had a tremendous season that led them all the way to the GICAA state championship game this past Friday, Feb. 21, 2014 in Macon against Horizon Christian.

The Lions fell 54-52 as the Warriors scored a last second basket at the buzzer.  The Lions fought hard and played great. Sophomore Caleb Thomas led the team with 20 points, followed by Senior Joe Zehna with 17 points.

This was not WCA’s first match up with Horizon this season.  When the Lions took on the Warriors Jan. 13 of this year, WCA lost 80-43.

“I could not be more proud of the determination and improvement this group of young men have displayed this season,” said Athletic Director and basketball head coach Matt Payne.

Westminster is so proud of its Lions, the 2014 Region 1A GICAA State Runners-Up!
