Solid Rock Academy Impressive In Win Over Lowndes In "Champions Classic"
On Thursday, the Pebblebrook Falcons “Champions Classic” continued with day two of action as both the Lowndes Vikings and Solid Rock Academy Lions, the defending Georgia Independent School Association champs, looked to bounce back from losses they suffered on day one of the classic. For the Vikings, Wednesday’s loss was their first of the season, while the Lions’ loss on Wednesday was their second of the season.
After losing by five points on Wednesday, the Lions came out Thursday determined to establish themselves as the dominate team of the match up and by the end of the first half, the Lions found themselves with a 38-23 lead. Defensive pressure, coupled with the Lions taking advantage of missed shots by Lowndes, would allow Solid Rock to cruise to a 66-44 win to go 1-1 in the “Champions Classic”.
Following the win, Solid Rock head coach Linzy Davis noted that Wednesday’s loss allowed his team to quickly learn some things out about themselves as it was the first time they were at 100 percent after having several players out due to injury. “ It was our first time playing with our two best players,” Davis said, noting that having Paul Cammas back on the court was a huge lift.
“He averages 32 points and 15 rebounds per game, that’s just tough to make up,” Davis said following Thursday’s game. The win over Lowndes gives the Lions their second win over a Georgia High School Association member school this season and for Coach Davis, it’s a win that helps them grow into being not only one of the top teams in the state, but in the country.
