HAZEL GREEN, Ala. (WAFF) – The Hazel Green girls basketball team defeated Riverdale on Saturday for a record 87th straight victory.
Hazel Green broke the record previously held by Lauderdale County with a 76-7 win over Riverdale Saturday.
Hazel Green head coach Tim Miller is in his 10th season with the Trojans, and while he admits he hasn’t talked to the girls about the streak, he’s very proud.
“The streak is huge. It’s something that’s great for our program and for Hazel Green herself. It makes you think, ‘Did this really happen in the last three years?’ We haven’t talked about it yet,” coach Miller said. “We don’t talk about that, we talk about our next practice to our next game. And we’re trying to move forward from there.”
Coach Miller is not satisfied with winning, he is looking for his sixth state championship.
“Strikes are great, but championships mean a little more,” Miller said.
