For the first time since 1986, the Lewisville Lions will play for the 1A State Championship in basketball Saturday in Columbia.
The fact that they are in the title game is amazing considering this team started 0-6.
They played a lot of 4A schools in the early going and took their lumps, but it got them mentally tough for this playoff run.
Another reason for the deep playoff run has been the teams hustle and hard work on the defensive end.
At 15-11, not many may give the Lions a chance against 24-3 Whale Branch but considering where this team was at the beginning of the season, don't count Lewisville out from pulling the shocker and bringing home their first state title since 1976.
