Knights Advance to Elite Eight

The Pace Academy varsity football team continues its march to the state finals. The Knights defeated Jefferson County High School in a back-and-forth battle on Nov. 22 to advance to the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) Elite Eight for the first time in Pace football history.
 
The 57-50 victory comes following a 49-28 win over Region 6AA champion Bowdon High School on Nov. 14. The Knights, kept alive by a late-season run, entered the tournament as the No. 4 seed and have gone on to surprise critics and thrill fans. Read Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Brent Holloway’s recap of the Nov. 22 game. 
 
On Friday, Nov. 28, the Knights will travel to Fitzgerald, Ga., to take on the Fitzgerald High School Purple Hurricane. Watch the game live on KnightFlix
