It may seem unusual for two Gwinnett teams to play for a state title — like Saturday's matchup between Norcross and North Gwinnett in the Class AAAAAA Girls Basketball final — but it's happened 28 times before.
We all know Gwinnett County is pretty competitive in Georgia high school sports. Just how competitive? All-time, Gwinnett schools have won or shared 311 Georgia High School Association sports championships, including the boys basketball title won by Dacula in 1938 and 10 more already won this school year.
