Wesleyan celebrates as the buzzer sounds

LUCKY 13th!

Seniors lead Wesleyan to unprecedented 13th state championship with decicive 61-44 win over nationally ranked Holy Innocents

 The fourth time was the charm. In the fourth meeting between Wesleyan and Holy Innocents this season, the Lady Wolves emerged the victor after three straight defeats.  In the most important meeting between the schools this year, Wesleyan defeated Holy Innocents 61-44 to claim the 2018 Class A state championship.  The title is the Lady Wolves' second straight, third in the last four years and 13th overall since 2002.  Things started off well for third ranked Wesleyan as they got out to an early 7-2 lead.  Top ranked Holy Innocents then got going and closed the first quarter on a 12-4 run taking a 14-11 lead at the end of the period.  The Golden Bears, ranked No. 11 in the country by USA Today and No. 21 by ESPN, led 15-11 at the 6:42 mark of the second quarter which turned out to be its largest lead of the game.  Amaya Register gave Wesleyan its lead back at 18-17 with 4:14 to play in the second period, a lead they would never relenquish.  The Lady Wolves closed the second quarter with 14-7 run after a Sutton West buzzer beater game them a 27-22 lead heading into halftime.  The momentum had swung back in Wesleyan's favor a\and the team kept its foot on the gas starting the second half.  Sutton West scored Wesleyan's first seven points of the second half as the lead grew to 34-26.  Register hit a three pointer to give Lady Wolves their first double digit lead of the game at 37-26.  Wesleyan outscored Holy Innocents 18-10 n the period as they opened a 45-32 lead at the end of three. The Lady Wolves increased their lead to as much as 21 points in the fourht quarter as Holy Inncocents continued having difficulty defending the pick and roll and the Lady Wolves' series of backdoor cuts.  Wesleyan saved its best for last as the team consolidated the gains it made in its semifinal win over St. Francis last week.  After playing an entire season, this team finally found itself and realized what it could do if they could maintain solid fundamental basketball for all four quarters.  Just like in 2015, Holy Innocents won both regular season meetings with Wesleyan and a close region championship game.  But also like in 2015, Wesleyan took the most important game of all, the state championship.  This was the fourth straight season that Wesleyan and Holy Innocents faced off for a state championship.  Wesleyan won in 2015, 2017 and now this year...taking three of the four titles.  Wesleyan's two seniors, West and Register, came up huge tonight and really felt the need go out on top. West led the Wesleyan scoring effort with 17 points, seven rebounds and two blocks.  Register scored 12 while recording  three steals.  Sophomore AC Carter had a double double as she scored 14 points and pulled down 10 rebounds.  Freshman Paige Lyons added 10 points, six boards and three steals while Izzy Larsen chipped in seven points and four boards.  The win propelled Wesleyan to it's 13th state championship which the most for any girls basketball team in Georgia history.  Taylor County has the second most titles in state history with 11.  Taylor County's have been won over a five decade period.  Wesleyan's have occured over the past 17 years.  Since 2001, Wesleyan has been in the state title game in 17 of 18 years with 13 championships and four runner up finishes.  The only year Wesleyan failed to make it to the title game was in 2003 whey they lost in the quarterfinals.  With the win, Wesleyan stopped Holy Innocents' win streak at 21 and finishes its season with a record of 27-4 while Holy Innocents falls to 29-2.  This was the last game in the careers of Register and West whose leadership and poise was on full display today as they led their young teammates to the promised land.  These two young ladies exemplify what it means to be  Wesleyan girls basketball players.  They lead by example both on and off the court and are supreme role models for all Wesleyan youngsters.   Congratulations are in order for the entire team.

West, Carter power No. 3 Wesleyan into 15th straight finals appearance with 71-49 demolition of No. 2 St. Francis

AC Carter scores over St. Francis' Arynn Eady
The pundits said Wesleyan didn't have a shot against St. Francis.  The smallish Lady Wolves would simply be outsized by the much taller and more athletic Knights.  Problem is, pundits don't actually play the game.  Wesleyan came out and led start to finish and totally dominated the reloaded Knights Friday night with an impressive 71-49 win in the semifinals of the 2018 Class A State Tournament at the Frank G. Lumpkin Center on the campus of Columbus State University in Columbus.  The tone was set early after St. Francis controlled the tip but missed a point blank layup.  Sutton West got Wesleyan on the board first with a layup on the other end.  After a defensive stop, Callie Weaver hit a corner three pointer to give the Lady Wolves a 5-0 lead. Third ranked Wesleyan built a 20-8 lead late in the first quarter before second ranked St. Francis closed to within 20-10 at the end of the period.  The Knights then scored the first five points of the second quarter cutting Wesleyan's lead to 20-15 capping a 7-0 run dating back to the first quarter.  The Lady Wolves then went on a 15-4 run to close out the first half taking a 35-19 lead into halftime.  St. Francis opened the third quarter with a 5-2 run to cut the lead to 37-24 in the early going.  That would be a close as the Knights would get however as Wesleyan then went on a 13-6 run of its own to stretch the lead to 48-28 with 3:35 to go in the third period.  The Lady Wolves led 52-35 heading into the fourth quarter.  St. Francis scored the first four points of the fourth quarter to again cut the lead to 13 at 52-39 but a 7-0 Wesleyan run pushed the lead back to 20 at 59-39 with 6:09 left to play.  The Wesleyan lead grew as large as 26 points in the fourth quarter before settling for the 22-point victory.  West and Carter came up big for Wesleyan, both posting double doubles.  Carter led the scoring effort with a game hight 21 points to go with 10 rebounds and four assists.  West had a monster 18 points and 18 rebounds and had two blocks.  Weaver added 13 points, three assists and two rebounds while Paige Lyons scored eight points to go with three steals, two assists and two boards.  Amaya Register had a game high nine assists to go with four points.  Wesleyan has much to be proud of in a game that many simply gave them no shot to win.  This was the most complete game the Lady Wolves have played this season as the team has finally started to gel, and just in time.  They scored often in transition and they did not allow St. Francis many second chances on the offensive end.  Wesleyan had a whopping 30 defensive rebounds on the night, half of which belonged to West as she collected 15 of them.  St. Francis ends its season with a record of 26-5 while Wesleyan ups its record to 26-4 with the win.  Up next will be a familiar foe, the Holy Innocents Golden Bears, (30-1).  Wesleyan and Holy Innocents last met three weeks ago in the Region 5-A championship, a 54-47 Holy Innocents win.  This will be the fourth straight year for Wesleyan and Holy Innocents to meet in the state finals.  Wesleyan took the title in 2015 and 2017 while Holy Innocents won it in 2016.  The Class A State Championship game will be held next Friday, March 9 at 2:00 PM at McCamish Pavillion on the Georgia Tech campus.

Sutton West scores over Calvary Day's Charity Carter
Wesleyan had to drive five hours to Savannah Tuesday afternoon but came away with an emphatic 60-20 win over fourth ranked Calvary Day in the quarterfinals of the state tournament.  The game got out of hand early as the Lady Wolves took leads of 19-6 at the end of the first quarter and 36-12 at halftime.  Calvary tried to press but Wesleyan didn't have much trouble in breaking it which led to some easy points on the offensive end.  The lead grew to 54-14 heading into the shortened six-minute fourth quarter.  Wesleyan's two seniors led the way as Amaya Register and Sutton West scored 15 and 14 points respectively.  Register added four rebounds, four assists and four steals while West had a double double including 12 rebounds to go with three steals and three blocks.  AC Carter added nine points, eight boards, two steals and two blocks, while Izzy Larsen put up nine points, six rebounds and two steals.  Alyssa Phillip chipped in six points, five rebounds, two assists and two steals.  The Lady Wolves advance to the state tournament semifinals for the 15th straight season with the win.  Calvary Day ends its season with a record of 27-3 while Wesleyan ups its record to 25-4.  Wesleyan will next face No. 2 ranked St. Francis (26-4).  St. Francis posted an 89-41 win over Paideia in its quarterfinal game.  Tipoff will be 6:00 PM on Friday at Columbus State University.

Amaya Register scores over ELCA's Kayland Thompson and Chloe Craig
After a slow start, Wesleyan had no problem defeating Eagle's Landing Christian 71-25 in the second round of the 2018 Class A State Tournament.  The game, held at Wesleyan, was a little ugly in the first half as the Lady Wolves missed some easy shots in the early going but made up for it on the defensive end.  Despite the disconnected play of the first half, Wesleyan led 19-6 at the end of the first period and 33-16 at the half.  Adjustments were made at halftime and the team put a much different effort on the floor in the second half.  The offense got going and defense was lights out as ECLA was usually denied any chances at offensive rebounds.  Wesleyan outscored the Lady Chargers 24-6 in the third quarter taking a 57-22 lead into the fourth quarter.  Sutton West and AC Carter were Wesleyan's leading scorers putting up 18 points apiece.  West also had six rebounds, four assists and three steals while Carter had five rebounds, five steals and three assists.  Amaya Register, who was honored at halftime for achieving the 1000 career-point mark, scored 15 points and led the team in assists with six.  She also had three steals.  Nicole Azar had eight points and three boards for the Lady Wolves while Izzy Larsen scored four points and led the team in rebounds with seven.  With the win, Wesleyan advances to the quarterfinal round of the state tournament for the 18th straight year.  The Lady Wolves up their record to 24-4 with the win while Eagle's Landing Christian finishes its season at 19-8.  Wesleyan will next face Calvary Day, a 64-36 winner over Tattall Square in its second round game.  Wesleyan, the tournament's No. 6 seed, will have to travel five hours south to Savannah as No. 3 seeded Calvary will host.  The game will be Tuesday, February 27.  Game time is yet to be determined.

Amaya Register drives while guarded by Holy Innocents' Kennedy Suttle
Holy Innocents took the Region 5-A championship with a 54-47 win over Wesleyan Saturday night at Holy Innocents.  Unlike in the two regular season meetings between the two schools, both double-digit Holy Innocents wins, this game was close from start to finish.  Wesleyan led 12-10 at the end of the first quarter while Holy Innocents took a 23-22 lead into halftime.  Holy Innocents went on an 8-0 run to start the third quarter but Wesleyan was able to chip into the nine point lead the Bears took early in the period.  Wesleyan closed the margin to 38-33 entering the fourth quarter.  The Lady Wolves were able to further close the gap to two points during the fourth but were unable to tie the game late.  Holy Innocents increased the margin late due to late free throw attempts and also benefitted from an 18-4 advantage in free throw attempts.  AC Carter was the only Wesleyan player to score in double figures as she had 13 points to go with seven rebounds and two assists.  Amaya Register and Sutton West scored eight points apiece.  West added eight rebounds while Register had two assists.  Nicole Azar chipped in six points while Izzy Larsen added five points, three boards and three assists.  Holy Innocents ups its record to 26-1 with the win while Wesleyan drops to 23-4.  The Class A state tournament is up next for Wesleyan.  Date, location, time and opponent for their next game is to be determined.

Amaya Register goes up against Landmark's Elizabeth Gibbs
It was an odd game with numerous random stoppages in play, lots of fouls and lots of inconsistent play, but Wesleyan still posted a 62-47 win over Landmark Christian in the quarterfinals of the Region 5-A Tournament at Holy Innocents.  The Lady Wolves got out to an early double digit lead only to see Landmark cut the lead to seven at 18-11 at the end of the first quarter.  Wesleyan found itself in foul trouble in the second quarter and Landmark capitalized outscoring the Lady Wolves 13-10 in the period to cut the Wesleyan lead to just 28-24 at the half.  Wesleyan regrouped at halftime and came out more inspired in the third quarter outscoring 19-7 opening a 47-31 lead heading into the fourth.  The teams traded baskets in the fourth as Landmark never got the lead back down to single digits.  Callie Weaver led the Lady Wolves in scoring with 13 points to go with two rebounds and two steals. Sutton West had 11 points, eight rebounds, two steals and two blocks while Amaya Register had 10 points, three assists, and two steals.  AC Carter added 10 points and four rebounds while Paige Lyons chipped in nine points, seven boards, four assists and two steals.  The Lady Wolves are now 22-3 with the win and advances to the semifinals.  Wesleyan will face Our Lady of Mercy on Friday at 3:30 PM at Holy Innocents.

Amaya Register with teammates shortly after scoring her 1000th career point
Wesleyan senior Amaya Register scored the 1000th point of her career tonight in an 83-33 region win over Atlanta International at Wesleyan.  The Lady Wolves were up 27-9 at the end of the first quarter and 52-16 at the half.  The second and third quarters were both played at six minutes as all Wesleyan players saw action.  Tonight was Senior Night as both of Wesleyan's talented seniors, Register and Sutton West were honored after the game along with all Winter Sports seniors. Freshman Nicole Azar led Wesleyan in scoring with 22 points including six three pointers.  She also had five steals and two assists. Register finished the night with 16 points, two steals and two rebounds while West had 12 points, five boards, five steals and five assists.  AC Carter put up 10 points and two steals while Paige Lyons chipped in eight points, five assists and five steals.  The highlight of the evening was Register's 1000th career point.  That's not an easy accomplishment and is especially impressive when done by a point guard who always thinks to pass before she shoots.  She becomes only the 13th Wesleyan player to achieve that feat which is saying a lot given the number of outstanding players who have come through this program.   Congratulations Amaya!!   The Lady Wolves improve to 20-3 overall, 7-2 in region play.  Up next will the the final game of the regular season as they travel to Paideia to take on the Pythons.  Tipoff is Friday night at 7:00 PM.

Amaya Register defended by Holy Innocents's Khayla Hubbard
Holy Innocents got the best of Wesleyan again in a 69-49 win in front of a packed house at Holy Innocents.  The Lady Bears were quick down the court after Wesleyan miscues on the offensive end.  This led to easy points early on for the No. 1 ranked Bears.  Holy Innocents led 18-8 at the end of the first quarter and 43-18 at the half.  Wesleyan's performance in the first half was disconnected to say the least.  The Lady Wolves came out with more aggressiveness in the second half and actually outscored Holy Innocents 31-26 in the second half but the 25-point deficit at halftime was too large for the young Lady Wolves to overcome.  Amaya Register and Nicole Azar led the Wesleyan scoring effort with 11 points apiece.  Register also led the team in rebounds with six and assists with four.  Azar led the team in steals with three and had one board.  Izzy Larsen put up nine points, three rebounds and two steals.  AC Carter had eight points, two rebounds and two steals in limited playing time due to early foul trouble.  Wesleyan drops to 18-3 overall 6-2 in region while Holy Innocents ups its record to 19-1, 7-0.  Wesleyan will next face Southwest Atlanta Christian on the road in another region game.  Tipoff is tomorrow at 12:30 PM.

Lady Wolves not at their best as Holy Innocents wins first meeting with Wesleyan

Amaya Register guarded by Holy Innocents' Kennedy Suttle
Wesleyan started 2018 with a thud in a disappointing 48-34 loss to No. 1 ranked Holy Innocents Friday night in front of a packed Yancey Gymnasium on the Wesleyan campus.  Wesleyan started out flat as Holy Innocents opened an early 9-2 lead before Wesleyan closed the gap to 11-7 at the end of the first quarter.  Wesleyan kept pace in the second quarter as Holy Innocents held a 22-18 lead at halftime of the low scoring affair.  Unfortunatly the Lady Wolves did not emerge from halftime with a renewed fire as Holy Innoncents scored the first six points of the half extending their lead to 10.  Wesleyan closed the lead to six at numerous times in the second half but could get no closer.  This was Wesleyan's most lackluster game of the season and hopefully just an anomoly.  The team is simply better than they showed tonight.  Amaya Register was Wesleyan's leading scoring with 14 points to go with six rebounds.  AC Carter had 12 points and six rebounds while Paige Lyons had six points and three boards.  Wesleyan drops to 11-2 overall, 2-1 in region while Holy Innocents improves to 13-1, 3-0.  Wesleyan will next face Woodward tomorrow afternoon at 4:00 PM at Wesleyan.

Amaya Register shoots over Buford's Preston Reid

Wesleyan took one on the chin Saturday night as Class AAAAA No.1 ranked Buford edged Class A No. 1 ranked Wesleyan 48-46 in overtime.  The game, held at Wesleyan, was a physical battle in which the larger, stronger and older Wolves of Buford, bested Wesleyan for three quarters.  In the first half, Wesleyan simply did not match Buford's level of intensity.  Buford raced to a 15-4 lead at the end of the first quarter as they got to the loose balls first and simply played with more want, especially on the defensive end.  Wesleyan had much difficulty in the first half simply scoring.  They were not getting any second looks as Buford controlled the glass.  Buford led 20-11 at halftime.  Wesleyan made runs in the third quarter cuting the lead to four points only to see Buford stretch it back to nine points at the end of the period taking a 29-20 lead.  Wesleyan finally woke out of it's collective funk in the fourth. They started dictating the pace, getting after it on defense and, as a result, scoring.  Wesleyan was down by seven with under two minutes left in regulation.  Back to back threes by Callie Weaver and Amaya Register cut the Buford lead to one at 40-39. Buford converted a free throw on the other end to increase the lead to 41-39.  AC Carter was foulded on the ensuing Wesleyan possession and converted both free throws to tie the game at 41-41.  Buford played for the final shot but could not score and the game went into overtime.  Buford drew first blood in the overtime period but a Register three on the other end gave Wesleyan its first lead of the game at 44-43.  Buford however retook the lead on its next posession.  Buford had a 48-46 lead with 2 seconds left.  Register took a three from way beyond the three point line that was just off the mark and Buford walked away with only its ninth ever win over Wesleyan in 38 tries.  Register, clearly worn out after being pressured all night, held the team together and was Wesleyan's leading scorer with 18 points to go with three rebounds and one assist.  AC Carter had a double double with 13 points and 14 rebounds.  Sutton West pulled down a game high 18 rebounds to go with six points, four blocks and two assists.  This was a good game from which Wesleyan should learn. For three quarters, lackluster intensity netted a mere 20 points.  In the fourth quarter, the team found it's next gear, and outscored it's much larger and more physical opponent, 21-12.  Wesleyan falls to 4-1 on the season while Buford improves to 5-0.  Wesleyan will go back to region play next week as they hit the road to face WD Mohammed on Tuesday.  Tipoff is 5:30 PM.
