MONTGOMERY – Some things get better with time.
Abbeville Christian Academy defeated Pickens Academy 49-48 Thursday at the Cramton Bowl Multiplex to claim the AISA Class A championship, the first for the girls basketball program since the school opened in 1970.
Ricky Ward has now coached a team to 10 state AISA titles – the previous nine coming as the head coach at Lakeside School.
