Norcross High School’s run for a repeat state championship in girls basketball ended Monday night, but the hopes of two other area teams were on firm footing in the GHSA state basketball tournament.
Norcross, the defending Class 6A champ, lost 62-50 in a second-round game to South Forsyth, which made 15 of 19 free throws in overtime to win. Norcross had won three of the previous five state large-school titles.
Wesleyan and Greater Atlanta Christian each won easily in the Class 2A girls tournament.
Wesleyan, winners of six straight state championships, whipped Calhoun 84-47 Monday. The Wolves will play at Jefferson in quarterfinals.
GAC beat Bowdon 55-37 at home Monday, and will play at Kendrick in the next round.
