Lori Hines just concluded her 15th season as head girls basketball coach at George Walton Academy. And what a fitting conclusion it was.

With a 37-27 win over Brookstone at the Mercer University in Macon last Friday, the Lady Bulldogs claimed the Georgia Independent Athletic Association state championship. It was the first for the longtime Bulldogs coach, who is closing fast on 400 career coaching victories (she has 340, with 242 coming at GWA).
