Eagles crown District Champs, Girls advance
Both Hennessey High School basketball teams got off to a strong start in the playoffs last week, as both advanced to the Regional Stage. While the girls defeated Hinton to move on before falling to Fairview in the District Title Game, the boys won District over the Yellowjackets in Fairview.
The girls faced off against the Hinton Lady Comets on Friday in the opening round of the playoffs in Fairview, with a chance to advance to earn a trip to the Regional Round in Haylie Simunek’s first season as head coach.
“It’s nice to get that first playoff win,” stated Coach Simunek. “It’s been a while since these girls haven’t experienced that. It wasn’t pretty. It wasn’t how we wanted to come out to start the playoffs but we are happy we got a win and advanced.”
