The Lady Eagle basketball program is coming off a big junior high district tournament this past weekend and hope that the success carries over into this coming weekend.
Hebron Christian is a very young ball club with four starters still in junior high, but under the direction of head coach William Cotton have played great basketball in the month of January. Last weekâ€™s junior high tournament championship gave the junior high girls much needed experience playing in a tournament atmosphere.
Head Coach Gary Vaughn and his Hebron Christian Eagles are chomping at the bit as they are ready to enter into the district 3-A basketball tournament tonight.
Hebron has not played a game in over two weeks and have been really anticipating entering into the tournament. Even though some Eagles fans may be looking ahead to Saturday night, Coach Vaughn knows his team has to take care of Calhoun Academy first understanding how important the game is for seeding.
Oak Hillâ€™s Head Coach Brian Middleton knows how important tonightâ€™s game is against Canton Academy as the Raiders have yet to defeat the Cougars this season.
â€śA big game,â€ť said Coach Middleton during a phone interview Thursday, â€śa win over Canton puts us one step closer to a district championship.â€ť
