Seems like every Hillsboro High School post-season is exciting and rewarding, but there?s something special about making that trip to the Hutchinson Sports Arena to watch a Trojan team battle at the highest level in Class 3A hoops. This year, the Trojan girls? team will be making its third straight appearance in four years under coach Nathan Hiebert. We congratulate this relatively young squad and their coaches for this remarkable achievement, and wish them the best as they chase that elusive dream of a state title.
HHS basketball fans are spoiled. Since 1985, Trojan boys? and girls? teams have combined for 24 state tournament appearances and have brought home six championships. It?s a great tradition that never gets old. So here we go again. Dig out the maroon shirt, gas up the Fairlane and make your way to Hutch on Wednesday night. Last one out of town, be sure to turn off the lights as you leave. ?DR
