AHSAA STATE FINALS: BTW-Magnet falls to Madison Academy

Combined Report
(March 1, 2017)

BIRMINGHAM - A slow start and poor shooting was too much to overcome in Booker T. Washington Magnet’s first-ever trip to the AHSAA State semifinals in the Legacy Arena on Tuesday.

Madison Academy (34-1) jumped out to a quick lead and never looked back in a 68-24 win over the Yellow Jackets in the AHSAA Class 4A State Basketball Championships. The Mustangs will face defending state champion Deshler (34-0) on Friday.

BIRMINGHAM – It may turn out to be one of the most inspiring moments of the Alabama High School Athletic Association state basketball tournament, but it came too late to save Montgomery Academy.

Junior center Caroline Kirkham, diagnosed with a meniscus tear and a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee, limped onto the Legacy Arena court at the start of the fourth quarter, determined to prolong the Eagles’ season.

It didn’t work, but for a moment it looked as if it might.

Combined Report

Thirty minutes had settled nothing.

Montgomery Academy had led for just a little more than 12 minutes in the contest and trailed for 11 minutes, an indication that Wednesday’s 3A Central Region championship match with Midfield was hard-fought and bitter, a physical war where neither team had the upper hand for long.

The Montgomery Catholic boys struggled to find any rhythm in their 44-43 win over Escambia County High in the 3A South Regional in Dothan on Saturday, but there was one consistent force behind the Knights.

Point guard B.J. Barker scored 18 points, including a pair of crucial free throws with 11.9 seconds left that allowed the Knights to advance to their first regional final since 2001.

Thursday wasn’t a very good day for MPS programs as all four teams in action ended their seasons abruptly.

No other school system in the state took a beating the way the Montgomery County school system did, although there is a chance of redemption with the boys and girls teams from Carver and Sidney Lanier in action on Friday.

AHSAA GIRLS SUB-REGIONALS: MA, Catholic coast to wins; Carver advances on buzzer-beater

The Montgomery Academy girls knew Monday’s sub-regional matchup with Indian Springs wouldn’t be challenging but it didn’t keep them from challenging themselves.

In the first six minutes, Indian Springs made just 1-of-6 shots and committed 14 turnovers, so the Eagles’ 25-2 lead took care of the outcome. Lost in the sloppy play and the substitutions that limited the final score to 59-25 was the play of junior center Caroline Kirkham, who had eight points in the first quarter and eight more in the third to finish with 16.

Survive and advance.

That might have been the theme for the Catholic girls in the Class 4A Area 4 championship game in the Catholic gym on Friday night.

It wasn’t their best performance, but a 38-37 win over BTW Magnet was enough to help the Lady Knights capture the area title and host a sub-regional game on Monday. Catholic will play Ashford at home tonight at 7 p.m.

Chester Pruitt didn’t take the usual path to a state championship.

The Evangel Academy guard went from a backup role with the Lions to transferring to another school, from sitting out in December to earn most valuable player honors on Monday.
