Herndon Consolidated coach Dave Griffith told the girls on his basketball team that they needed a short memory.
Before last Thursday’s 53-31 win over Glen Fork in the Class B county championship at Mullens Middle School, he told not to think about the regular season games.
“I told them they had to forget about those two games,” he commented. “Tonight is a different night, and they’re not going to give it to you.”
His team got the message.
The Lady Indians (10-3) took control early and stayed there for the rest of the contest.
Kara Sandy had 22 points to lead HCS, and Katie Daniels scored 21 for the Tigers.
The Lady Indians lose three eighth graders from this year’s squad.
“They play good ball,” Griffith said of his team. “They’re easy going and they listen well. They come out and practice hard. This is a real coachable team.”
