To congratulate the lexington high school Boys Basketball Team, coaches, and School Officials on an outstanding season and to honor them for winning the 2024 South Carolina Class AAAAA State Championship title.


Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are proud to recognize the Lexington High School boys basketball team for winning the South Carolina Class AAAAA Basketball State Championship title on March 1, 2024, at the Florence Center; and


Whereas, making a sweet victory even sweeter, this historic win marks the program's first state title in twenty-four years. The last time the program played in a finals game was in 2012, but now they have earned their third state title; and


Whereas, in the championship game, the Lexington High School Wildcats defeated the Byrnes High School Rebels with a score of 67-48. They ended the season with a seventeen-game winning streak; and


Whereas, after a cold-shooting start, the Wildcats got hot and went on an 11-0 run over a four-minute span to lead 19-10 with 5:59 to go in the second quarter. By halftime Lexington was leading 29-22 despite Cam Scott, the reigning S.C. Gatorade Player of the Year, having just five points. At the half, Coach Pope told Scott "it was time," so Scott stepped up and scored 12 points in the third quarter allowing the Wildcats to extend their lead to 46-32 after three. By the end Senior Jaxon Prunty had scored 23 points and Texas signee Cam Scott had scored 21, giving the Wildcats the edge they needed to take home the trophy; and


Whereas, in an act of celebration, Head Coach Elliott Pope was doused with water and Powerade as he entered the locker room. Coach Pope then used a sledgehammer to break a cinder block that was placed in the middle of the locker room. This action symbolized the Wildcats finally breaking through with a championship win; and


Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives appreciate the pride and recognition that the Lexington High School boys basketball team has brought to its school and look forward to hearing about the future achievements of these young athletes. Now, therefore,


Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:


That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, congratulate the Lexington High School boys basketball team, coaches, and school officials on an outstanding season and honor them for winning the 2024 South Carolina Class AAAAA State Championship title.


Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Interim Principal Ann O'Cain and Head Coach Elliott Pope of Lexington High School.
