Hatch girls win

R.C Hatch High School pulled out a 52-43 win against Horseshoe Bend in the AHSAA class AA central regional tournament at the Acadome in Montgomery.

“We didn’t really show up tonight,” said Hatch coach John Abraham. “But we got the win.”

There was some confusion from the beginning and the first shots of the game were taken on the wrong side of the court by R.C. Hatch.

“The referees lined everyone up for the tip-off wrong,” said Abraham. “We teach our girls ‘to the tip’ and they did that, so I’m not upset.”

Once the court situation was settled, the game got underway.
