Georgia Sparks Basketball Team Competes In Atlanta & Tennessee

After finishing the tournament in Atlanta, the Sparks headed to Nashville, Tennessee, to play in The Apache Paschal Memorial and Battle in the Boro.
The Georgia Sparks left South Georgia on July 6, heading to Atlanta, Georgia, to play in the Insider Exposure Summer Tip Off at North Gwinnett High School. The Georgia Sparks 2018 and 2020 teams competed against some really good teams from California, Tennessee, South Carolina, Illinois, North Carolina and Canada, and both teams finished with a combined record of 4 wins and 3 losses. 
After finishing the tournament in Atlanta, the Sparks headed to Nashville, Tennessee, to play in The Apache Paschal Memorial and Battle in the Boro. The sparks competed against more good teams from Tennessee, Ohio, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana and Texas, and the Sparks finished the week with 6 wins and 4 losses. 
This was the first half of our July college exposure tournaments, which we finished with a record of 10 wins and 7 losses.  
The most important part of these tournaments is not the wins and losses but the chance to play in front of college coaches, which the girls got plenty of really good looks.
The Sparks will continue the second part of their college exposure season starting on July 23 in Atlanta and finish in Augusta.
