The girls finished third in the state, with junior Paula Sandoval and freshman Laura Arenth bringing home sixth- and eighth-place medals, respectively.

The boys finished fourth in the state, and junior George Adams brought home the 10th-place individual medal. Way to go, runners, coaches, trainers and fans!

On Saturday, Nov. 3, in front of a gym packed with Pace Knights, the varsity volleyball team brought home its second state-championship title in as many years. In a repeat of the 2016 and 2017 state finals, the Knights defeated the Westminster Wildcats 3-1.

The victory was the culmination of a courageous season in which the team overcame injuries, illnesses and early losses.

Following the season, four Knights were honored by the Georgia Volleyball Coaches Association (GVCA). Junior Ada Jane Agolli, senior Alexandra Baker and sophomore Kalissa Greene were named to the GVCA All State Team, while junior Dominique Turner received the All State Honorable Mention Award.

Congratulations to our student-athletes, coaches, trainers and fans on back-to-back state titles!
