BOGUE CHITTO – Region 7-1A leader Hinds AHS turned back the host Bogue Chitto Lady Cats 66-58 Tuesday night in R.L. “Bob” Calhoun Gymnasium. The Lady Bulldogs were powered by Eric Harris who scored 22 points to lead four players in double figures.

“It was a physical district game,” said BC girls coach Christi Terrell. “My girls gave a great effort and hustled but Hinds shot the ball well and made shots at the end of the game to get the win.

“We must do a better job executing offensively and apply more defensive pressure against our opponents.”
