4A State Champions Midfield High School Boys Basketball Team

Pates beat #1 Butler to earn first State Title in 28 years!http://highschoolsports.al.com/news/article/8614304953466986214/class-4a-boys-championship-midfield-46-butler-45/

Team Pates head to the State Final 4 for the 2nd time in as many years: The Pates would take on #7 Oneonta in the Semi Final game. After a subpar 1st half the Patriots came out with a great second half to win 71-52 (highlights below). This win advanced the Pates to the State Championship game for the first time in 28 years. Midfield would see #1 Butler, who put the Pates out in the Semi Finals last year. After scoring only 20 pts through 3 quarters, the Pates would finally find their niche, scoring 26 4th quarter pts. However the Pates still found themselves down by 2pts with 2.8 seconds remaining……….Below see what would become “The Shot” seen around the nation!!!!! Can you say 4A State Champs??????? Also see postgame press interviews and much more!!

Feb. 23-25, 2012: Pates Head to Regionals after more Adversity, but prevailed in shocking fashion: Beating #4 Dadeville 54-48 after being down by 15pts, and then taking down a TOUGH Sumter Central squad 54-52 on a last second lay up:

Feb. 17, 2012: Also checkout Sub Regional Highlights vs #2 Green Co, whom we beat 51-47 in O.T. after being down 10pts w 5:00 left to play.

Feb. 10-13: We opened the first round of Area play vs  #7 Calera; and for the 3rd time this season/8th overall, the Pates would down Calera. This time ending their season for good!
