Many Appling County Pirate fans traveled over 270 miles to Calhoun on Friday, Dec. 2 to support the Pirates as they played in the State 2AA final four against the Calhoun Yellow Jackets (14-0). The Pirates were not able to pick up the win, losing 14-51, but ended the season with an amazing record of 12-2 overall while going 6-1 in region play. The Pirates made it to the final four for the second time in school history with the only previous time coming during the 1999 season and one season removed from finishing 4-7 overall and 3-4 in region play.
