MS #121 AAA #2

Hartfield Academy Hawks 19-9 (AAAA Flowood, MS) 45

MS #86 AAAA-DII #3

Notes: A very solid team effort from JD Ransom (6-3 ’19 G Hillcrest Academy), Donovan Givens (6-6 ’19 F Hillcrest Academy), Devon Bates (’22 G Hillcrest Christian) and Harrison Carr (’20 G Hillcrest Christian) to advance Hillcrest to the Championship Game. They combined to go 15 of 15 from the free-throw line to help get the win. Carr was all over the court with his hustle. Givens looked very good shooting from behind the arc. Rob Hamilton (6-4 ’19 G/F Hartfield Academy) looked very solid in the loss for Hartfield Academy.

Notes: Wenton Walker (6-6 ’20 G/F Jackson Academy) did everything he could to keep JA in the game but it wasn’t enough to overcome the tough Heritage team. Moak Griffin (6-1 ’19 G Heritage Academy) and Eli Acker (6-6 ’20 F/C Heritage Academy) both had very solid games in the win to advance to the Championship Game.

(B) Heritage Academy Patriots 31-4 (AAA Columbus, MS) 81

MS #29 AAA #1

Hillcrest Christian Cougars 23-9 (AAA Jackson, MS) 52

MS #121 AAA #2

Notes: Moak Griffin (6-1 ’19 G Heritage Academy) saved the best shooting game of his career for the last one. He refused to loose and helped Heritage Academy to a big early lead. Heritage held on to win the MAIS Overall gold ball. Cameron “Beno” Bell (6-6 ’19 F/C Heritage Academy) was also a big factor down low in his last prep game. Devon Bates (’22 G Hillcrest Christian) continued his outstanding performance at the Overall tournament with another 20 point game. One of the biggest pieces to Heritage Academy and their championship run was the best manager in the state. Leighton Whiteside (’29 #1 Heritage Academy) is the vocal leader for the team. He believes and supports his team during the lows and highs. The Patriots are blessed to have him on the bench lifting them up.

    1. Yeah. I’ve been covering the girls all year then someone sent me a message the other day and said if I wasn’t going to do any better with the girls than what I was that I might as well quit. I took him up on his offer. It cut my workload in half and I wasn’t getting any traffic with the girls info at all. In a perfect world I would cover all of them.
