LAPEL — Eastern Hancock’s girls basketball program on Monday received its highest state ranking ever — No. 3 in the Class 2A coaches’ poll.
That came just in time for the first of two contests this week against other 2A-ranked teams, this one with Lapel, which checked in at No. 11.
The Royals came into Lapel an unbeaten and deeper side, but the Bulldogs showed to be the hungrier and — at least on Tuesday night — the better squad, winning 70-59.
