Three-peat complete: Military Magnet rolls to a third straight state title

MMA girlsThanks to a stifling defense and a big second quarter in the South Carolina High School League A state finals, Military Magnet Academy (25-6) cemented its legacy as a dynasty in girls' basketball. The Eagles took down Denmark-Olar, 54-41, in the South Carolina High School League Class A state finals on March 4, 2023, in Aiken, SC, to claim their third state championship in a row. They are the first basketball program (boys or girls) in Charleston County School District history to win three consecutive state titles.
The Eagles used a 20-4 run in the second quarter to take command; they forced 37 turnovers and made 17 steals in the victory.
Senior Chazmin Bradley led Military Magnet with 17 points, and sophomore De'Jamari Pugh added 13 points and eight rebounds.
Military Magnet defeated the Vikings in the state finals last year as well.
The Eagles set another district record by making the Class A title game; they are the first CCSD school to reach the finals four years in a row.
