GMC Prep girls basketball is back in the Region 7-A championship for a second consecutive year.
The Lady Dogs advanced to the title round by soundly defeating Wilkinson County 56-36 Friday night. GMC head coach Shawn Dennis' girls now have a rematch on their hands as they are set to face defending champion Stratford Academy for the region title. The two teams squared off in the championship round last year, a game Stratford won 44-35. The title bout rematch is set for 7 p.m. Saturday.
Earlier in the evening in boys action, the GMC Prep boys dropped their semifinal to Wilkinson County 68-63. They will play in the consolation round Saturday to try for a third-place finish in the region. That game is slated for 5:30 p.m.
All remaining Region 7-A games are being played at Hancock Central High School in Sparta.
