Eagles capture Regional Championship over Carnegie
The Hennessey Eagles swept their two games last week in the second round of the playoffs to take home the Regional Championship, and advance to the winner’s side of the Area Bracket. With these two victories, Coach Brady Page and the Eagles have now put themselves in position to win either next Friday or Saturday in order to qualify for the State Championship Tournament.
“It is always good to stay in the winner’s bracket so your back is not against the wall,” explained Page. “I told the kids this was a big win because now we get two chances to go win one, and hopefully we take care of business Friday night.”
After a narrow 69-66 victory over Merritt last Thursday in which the Eagles had to come from behind, Hennessey made the return trip to Hinton on Saturday to take on No. 10 Carnegie for the Regional Title.
