The Keith High School Lady Bears defeated R.C. Hatch 52-38 Thursday to advance to the final four in the AHSAA Class 2A state semifinals.

What a feat. All of Selma and Dallas County should be proud of these girls and the season they have put together. We know the town of Orrville is smiling big after this victory, but there are still two games to be played before the Bears bring home a championship.

The team and its coaches should all be proud too. The Lady Bears are the last team standing and only team in Selma and Dallas County still playing for a shot at the title.

We also want to congratulate the Keith boys team. They made it to the regional finals but lost 51-32 to Aliceville Thursday. Don’t hang your heads in shame, guys. You should all be proud of how far you made it in the tournament. You all deserve a round of applause for your effort and for representing our community so well on the court.

The Lady Bears will play Sandrock in Birmingham Monday at 6 p.m. in the state semifinals.
