Congratulations to the Hillsdale Middle School Basketball team on winning the Division 1A Basketball championship. This is the second year in a row for the players-making them back to back champions! Mr. Ken Megginson, School Board President and District Representative, came to Hillsdale Middle School to congratulate the Basketball Team members on their winning skills. With a record of 12-2, Hillsdale defeated Scarborough Middle 43-25. It was a great win for the team this year, after completing a perfect season from last year when Hillsdale was Mobile County Champs with a record of 14-0 and beat Chastang Middle in overtime (55-50). Coach Edwin Burke stated, "I am so very proud of the boys these last two years for being hard-workers in the class as well as on the court. Hopefully, each boy will take what he has learned from me to help him in life experiences and become a productive citizen."

Congratulations to hillsdale. I've watched you play for the last two years, and it shows how the coach worked the boys pretty well. Its a shame that the school will be closing, but it sure would be nice to see the coach move to the high school level and take his coaching to a higher level.
Congratulations Hillsdale!!! I enjoy watching your intense defense and fast paced style of play. I look forward to seeing you guys play on the next level in high school. However, I would have preferred seeing a Hillsdale/Chestang matchup in the finals again this year rather than an all district format.
