Thursday night, February 22nd, capped off an emotional day with two wins for the Falcons. Both the men’s and women’s team are headed to the third round of the NCHSAA Basketball playoffs! The Lady Falcons won 64-57 with big performances by Nia Washington and Sammi Sever. Both these ladies also received All-Conference honors.  I caught up with Nia Washington and asked her what their expectation was for the game. “We wanted to start off strong and play all 32 minutes hard,” Washington said. I also asked her what she thought the team has to make a deep playoff run, “we play together and we motivate each other, even when someone makes a mistake, and every person works hard.” said Washington. Nia is also only one of three women’s basketball players to ever reach 1,000 points in Green Hope history.

The men entered their game against Panther Creek hot, coming off a Conference Championship, in which they had beat Panther Creek for the title. The Falcons began to pull away in the third quarter and were up by 19 at one point. Justin McKoy’s team was too little and too late though as they fell 69-65 to the more dominant Falcons. At this point in the Fight for 55, it’s just a question of how much can we beat PC by?
