Despite a furious second half rally, the Winder-Barrow High School Lady Bulldoggs fell short in their bid to advance to the state tournament Friday night.
The WBHS girls fell 57-54 to Loganville in the quarterfinals of the Region 8-AAAA tournament in which the winner was guaranteed a spot at state. Trailing by seven points after the third quarter and by double digits in the contest, the Lady Doggs forced overtime on a three-pointer by Lauren Hamel with 15 seconds left in regulation.
LHS outscored WBHS 5-2 in the extra four minute session, however, to advance. See next week's edition of the Barrow Journal for a complete region tournament update.
