TURNER CO., GA (WALB) -

The Turner County girls had a great season last year, but fell short in the state championship. Since that game, the Lady Rebels have been flawless in their pursuit of a second chance.

Saturday night turner County defeated Clinch county in their closest final of the season 67 to 63.

That win gives Turner a pristine record of 25 and 0.

They have defeated opponents by an average of about 27 points per game so far.

Led by 7 seniors, turner County believes this is the year they will claim the state title, and their coach  Tasha Kimble echoed that following their senior night victory Friday night.

"Records really don't mean anything to me because our ultimate goal is to get to Macon on March 3rd," said Kimble. "Because we want to win a state championship. I've been preaching that since last year when we lost in Macon last year so they want it, they want to go back, and they don't want to end their senior year without one."

The Lady Rebels are looking to win the first state title in program history.
