“It was a great overall team win. I’m vry proud of the way my young guys played tonight,” Hillman coach Cody Allen said. “It’s been a great start to my coaching career. I couldn’t ask for a better group of young men to coach. They make it pretty easy for us. We are very proud of our regular season accomplishments, but we still have work to do.”
