Both the Hillsboro Girls and Boys teams swept the District 12-AAA Championship games and the MVP’s on Saturday at Antioch in the district tournament. Anaya Martin and JP Pegues earned the All-Tournament Most Valuable Player award handed out at the end each game.
First, the Lady Burros beat a very good Lady Ravens Cane Ridge team, 44-36. Like the regular season match-ups, this game promised to be intense, close, and well coached. Hillsboro’s head coach, Cherish Stringfield was named District 12 AAA Coach of the Year. Joann Tribue, the Lady Ravens coach was named CoY in 2018.
The game was a nail biter and neither team led by more than 4 in periods 1-3. The Lady Burros pulled away as the Lady Ravens were forced to foul to attempt to get the ball back, however, Trechelle Burch stepped up her game, leading the team with rebounds in the 4th quarter.
Strong play under the basket set the Burros up for another win. The Burros dominated the first 10 minutes of the game shutting out Overton 18-0 setting up an 18-0 lead against the upstart Overton Bobcats, 60-47 win.The Bobcat’s valiant but unsuccessful surge late in the third was just not enough to overcome
