Final: AA girls, Paideia vs. Wesleyan (Roundup, running score)

Wesleyan was not going to be stopped this time.

The Lady Wolves defeated Paideia 79-40 Saturday in the GHSA Class AA girls championship at the Macon Coliseum, erasing the disappointment of last year's championship game loss.

It is the fourth title in five years for the Lady Wolves (30-3), who were led by Erin Hall, who finished with 22 points while shooting six 3-pointers. Anne Marie Armstrong, who had 40 points Thursday against Savannah Christian, had 13 points. Aysia McKenzie had 14.

The Pythons (25-8) found themselves in a hole early after Wesleyan jumped out to a 13-0 lead to open the game. Nine of those points were off of 3-pointers. The Lady Wolves shot 12 3-pointers in the rout.

The final quarter was played in only six minutes due to the GHSA mercy rule that states if a team is ahead by at least 30 points going into the fourth quarter, six minutes are put on the clock instead of eight. Wesleyan was up by 34.
