The Hawks had a magnificent showing in the event, including a win over Lexington Christian.
“The Mountains really represented well,” said Pike County Central assistant head coach Aaron Rigdon. “We won the championship of the consolation bracket and went 4-1 in the tournament. That last game (Lexington Christian) our kids fought and played with passion on the biggest stage they ever have.”
