CHARLOTTESVILLE — Head coach Bryan Graham and the Triton Central Tigers took the first step in their quest for a state championship on Saturday. The 2A No. 1 Tigers proved once again why they are the top team in their class by defeating the Eastern Hancock Royals 65-43 in the Sectional 42 championship game.
“Never take anything for granted,” Graham said. “A couple of years ago, during senior Maya Chandler’s freshman year, we were ranked No. 1 and played Eastern Hancock in the sectional final. They beat us. You always have the feeling in the pit of your stomach of déjà vu. I told the girls that we are too good for déjà vu. We need to go out and make our own history.”
