TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR THE LEWISVILLE HIGH SCHOOL BOYS VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM, COACHES, AND SCHOOL OFFICIALS FOR AN OUTSTANDING SEASON, AND TO CONGRATULATE THEM FOR WINNING THE 2013 CLASS A STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE.
Whereas, the South Carolina House of Representatives is pleased to learn that the Lewisville High School boys varsity basketball team from the town of Richburg in Chester County won the Class A State Championship on March 2, 2013, at the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia; and
Whereas, to the delight of their fans, the Lewisville Lions emerged from the final game of the season against the Whale Branch High School Warriors with the school's first boys basketball state trophy in thirty-seven years; and
Whereas, although the Lions scored first with a three-pointer, followed early on by several more baskets outside the arc, Whale Branch tied the game by the end of the first quarter and led Lewisville 28-23 at halftime; and
Whereas, when the teams returned to the court for the second half, the Lions outscored the Warriors 11 to 1 in the first two minutes of the third quarter and started the final quarter with a 49-37 lead; and
Whereas, after Lewisville banked a 16-point lead during the fourth quarter and ultimately defeated Whale Branch by a score of 64-54, the entire team rushed into the stands to celebrate with the throng of Lion fans who had traveled to the Colonial Life Arena for the momentous event; and
Whereas, in a sport that demands speed, strength, and agility, Head Coach Larry Davis and his skilled coaching staff built a championship team through relentless drills and tireless practices and taught these student-athletes lessons that will prove invaluable through life both on and off the court; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are grateful for the pride and recognition that the Lewisville High School Lions boys varsity basketball players have brought to their school and their community and look to hear of their continued accomplishments in the days ahead. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and honor the Lewisville High School boys varsity basketball team, coaches, and school officials for an outstanding season, and congratulate them for winning the 2013 Class A State Championship title.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Principal Jim Knox and Coach Larry Davis.
