Mitchell County’s Stacey Butler (25) fights for a rebound during the first half of Friday’s GHSA Class A Elite 8 game against Lanier in Milledegeville. The Eagles, who were big underdogs against the state-ranked Bulldogs, not only held their own, but had a shot to win it in the final seconds, but Butler’s shot was just off the mark.

Three hoops teams from Mitchell had a chance to keep the county’s state title hopes alive Friday in the GHSA Class A State Tournament in Milledgeville, but one by one — starting with Pelham’s girls and followed by Mitchell’s girls and boys, who nearly upset state-ranked Lanier before falling, 45-44 — they were knocked off.
