Final: A girls, Calvary Day 57, Terrell County 48 (Roundup, running score)

Terrell County was bigger, stronger, more athletic and ranked first in the state.

Calvary Day, however, went home with the trophy.

The Lady Cavaliers got hot in the third quarter to take the lead, then warmed up at the free-throw line in the fourth quarter to hold on for a 57-48 win Saturday over Terrell County to take the GHSA Class A state championship at the Macon Coliseum.

Calvary Day finished the title season 27-5 while Terrell County ended at 29-2. The Lady Greenwave had not lost since Dec. 27 when Worth County held on for a 31-30 win.

Natalie Paris drained five 3-pointers, mostly at clutch times in the second half, for 17 points while Katie Covington led Calvary Day with 26. Monshay Thomas paced Terrell County with 23.

Covington scored on the baseline and added a 3-pointer for a 25-24 lead at the 5:47 mark of the third quarter, Calvary Day’s first lead since the opening minutes. The Lady Cavs made six of their first seven shots of the period and took a 37-34 lead – thanks in part to a pair of Paris 3-pointers – but couldn’t score over the final 2:30 before settling for a 37-36 lead after three.

Terrell County took a brief lead early in the fourth, but two Covington free throws put Calvary Day ahead for good with 6:23 left. The Lady Cavs then stayed patient on offense and controlled the tempo, preventing Terrell County from coming back.
