In all three appearances at the Big House this season Holly Springs delivered heart-pounding games. The first two games came out in the Hawks favor. The third and most important game was in the way of St. Andrews Episcopal. Garrison Wade (6-6 ’18 F St. Andrews Epsicopal 19 pts, 11 pts in the 4th quarter, 19 reb, 14 in 2nd half, 5-7 ft 2 ast 3 blk) put the Saints on his shoulders to deliver the Gold Ball.
