THS girls pull away from Bleckley, reach semi for first time since ’04

THOMASVILLE — Thomas McAboy has been there as a player and as an assistant. And now the Thomasville High girls basketball coach will reach the state semifinal round as a head coach.

The Bulldogs used a run right before halftime Tuesday to pull away from visiting Bleckley County and cruised from there 62-48 to punch their ticket to a GHSA Class AA semifinal. Thomasville (26-2) will play four-time reigning Class A champion Wesleyan, a 66-49 winner against Calhoun, at 7 p.m. Friday at Middle Georgia. The Wolves have won five straight state championships and eight titles in the past nine seasons, including four in Class AA. THS, meanwhile, is making its first trip to a semifinal since 2004 after winning back-to-back Class AA titles in 1997-98 and finishing second in Class AAA in 1993.

“I’ve been there as a player and as an assistant, but never been as a head coach so it’s pretty exciting,” McAboy said.

“It’s going to be a big challenge. Wesleyan is full of tradition. So is Thomasville. It’s exciting because to be the best, you have to beat the best.”
