Congratulations to the Varsity Boys’ basketball team for their performance in last week’s Class AAAA tournament! They won every game except the last, only narrowly falling to MRA by 3 points in overtime. But, that’s not the end of the story…
Because they placed as runner-ups in the Class Tournament, tomorrow the Varsity Boys’ basketball team moves on to play in the MAIS overall tournament at Mississippi College; they will face Parklane beginning at 7:15 PM. Once again, we need all our Cougar fans to show up, get loud, and cheer our team on to victory. In this tournament, it’s win or go home, and we want Hillcrest to bring home that golden ball trophy!
Baseball season also “hits the ground running” this week! We will face Newton tomorrow here at home, time to be announced, and there are 2 more games this week as well.
One more — rather important — thing to remember: 9 Weeks’ Exams take place Tuesday through Friday of this week. Parents, please remind your athletes and/or fans to spend time studying. While we want to excel in and support athletics, academics still come first.
Congratulations to our Varsity Boys’ Basketball team for their victory in the district tournament Saturday night, beating East Rankin Academy 70 to 58 and sealing their place as D2 State Champs!
Today the team advances to the Class AAAA tournament at Jackson Academy to take on Jackson Prep beginning at 5:15 PM. We need all Cougar fans to go to the game and support our team! Let’s cheer them on to a Win!

…Basketball goals, that is. Congratulations to our JV teams — girls and boys — for their victories at the district tournament held at Parklane yesterday. The boys’ team took 1st place for the second year in a row, and the JV girls came in 2nd overall in the district. Way to go, Cougars!!!
We also want to congratulate our senior basketball players for their successes this season and every other season which they’ve played as Cougars throughout the years. Thank you for all your hard work and for your neverending Cougar spirit!
