The calendar only recently turned to February, but Madison has already locked up one of the TCC’s championship trophies for winter sports.
Madison beat Morenci Thursday, 50-47, to clinch no worse than a share of the 2015-16 TCC girls basketball championship. It’s Madison’s fifth consecutive TCC title.
Kendall Hudson scored 20 points in the Madison win. Morenci had a potential game-tying shot miss at the buzzer.
Madison becomes the first TCC girls basketball team to win five straight loop crowns. Trojans coach Rick McNeil joins Kris Hubbard (9), Bart Bartles (7) and Bill Gomoluch (5) as the only league coaches with five or more girl basketball titles.
