Allan Wynne and the Hawks continue their journey into the regional bracket.
Blake Buchanan attempts a three in the fourth after he already had put one in earlier in the game.
Grayson Chappelear drives to the basket late. Ultimately, gaining the contact, the basket and a successful trip to the line for a three point play.

Richard Hardy Hawks’ men’s basketball program, who nabbed second place in district 6A, advanced through round one of the regional contests. Whereas the ‘usual suspects’ were effective on offense such as Allan Wynne (22 points), Aaron Robinson (15 points) and Simon Klompien (18 points) the Hawks were able to dig deep into their bench garnering seven points from Grayson Chappelear and five points from Blake Buchanan. There were only four players on the roster that didn’t contribute offense for the game. The Hawks finish with a 86-54 win over the Cougars of Copper Basin.

Though the Richard Hardy Hawks had to settle for runner up in the district 6A championship game, they were well represented in the coach’s choice all-district team as Allan Wynne, Simon Klompein and Aaron Robinson were all recognized for their season contributions.

Other area teams also had representatives for the coveted selections. Marion County High School saw Kane Hale and Isaiah Sampson selected to the ceremonial team. This made a nice night for the Warriors as they had earlier in the evening defeated Sale Creek to finish the the district in third place going into regionals.

South Pittsburg Pirates would also have a couple of players recognized as Jabrale Ford and Hogan Holland would receive the nod from the district coaches.

Congratulations to all the team’s and individual awards that were awarded Tuesday night.
