Milledgeville -- The Terrell Academy Lady Eagles will play for the state championship Saturday after a 55-41 win over David Emmanuel Thursday night.
Senior Courtney Spillman surpassed the 2,000 point plateau for her career in the victory.
Spillman and Christina Sapp make up the entire senior class at Terrell Academy.
The pair have reached the Final Four every year of their high school career, playing in the state title game once previously.
The seniors are looking to win Terrell Academy's first ever state championship this weekend.
The Lady Eagles will have to go through defending state champ LaGrange to take the title, and Terrell Academy head coach Keith Jones says each school has plenty of experience on the big stage.
"Both teams, this is nothing new for them," says Jones, "and it aught to be a knock-down-drag-out."
Terrell Academy faces LaGrange Saturday at noon.
