C.A. Johnson’s girls basketball team did something unique on Monday. The Green Hornets, at long last, know what it feels like to rejoice in the glow of a state playoff victory.
CAJ (11-13) scored the historic win at the expense of former region foe Blackville-Hilda at home, 53-45. It was the 10th win in the last 11 games for the Region 3 champion Hornets.
Logan Furtik and Nakia Owens headlined the Green Hornet triumph by scoring 15 and 13 points, respectively. Deja Smith also helped the cause with seven points.
C.A. Johnson’s first-ever second round game will be a demanding one. The Green Hornets host defending state champion Christ Church on Thursday. The Cavaliers brushed aside Abbeville 58-33 in first-round action on Monday.
