Hillsboro wins the 2003 Trojan Classic!

Hillsboro laid claim to its seventh Trojan Classic championship in nine years with a 37-32 win over the Inman Teutons Saturday night at Brown Gymnasium.

Hillsboro got off to a great start, racing to an 18-6 lead after one quarter. But the Trojan shooting cooled down considerably in the second quarter, as HHS managed only 4 of 11 from the field. Inman took advantage to pull to within three, 24-21, at the break.

The game stayed close throughout the third quarter. Both team managed only two baskets in nine attempts. Hillsboro still led, but only by a score of 29-27 when the quarter ended on a huge 3-point bucket by Dustin Jost.

In the final period, the number of shots dwindled to six a piece. The Trojans made two and Inman only one.

HHS still built the lead to seven, 35-28 on a basket by Tyler Peachey with 2:26 to go. But Inman cut the lead to three, 35-32, with less than two minutes to play. The Trojans managed three foul shots in six attempts in the final 24.4 seconds to nail down the win.

The Trojans are now 10-2 on the season.
