Galilean Christian Academy carried the number-four seed and a really big chip on their shoulder into the KCSAA 4A State Tournament in Lexington on Friday and Saturday.
A 31-4 regular season record didn’t seem enough for most to give the Eagles much respect, but that didn’t bother their head coach.
“I don’t worry about what seed, or where they put us in the bracket. You have to beat the best teams to win a state title anyway,” said Coach Scott Jones.
