You take your bumps and bruises when you become battle-tested. Congratulations to Milton and Pace Academy for getting a chance to dance on one of the biggest stages that HS hoops has to offer.  Although both teams came up a bit short, it does allow for them to cherish the moment and store it in their memory banks.  For players returning next season, it’s fuel for the fire.  For those graduating, it’s a once in a life time moment that will last a lifetime. Teams that play national competition and test the waters, become battle-tested. Developing a special brand of basketball that only elite programs attain through competition, development, and grind.  Cherish the moments and continue to push the envelope.  Hoop fans in GA appreciate you.
