Phil Campbell takes advantage of lucky coin toss

Phil Campbell, Colbert County and Danville finished in a three-way tie for first place in the area. The right to host the Class 3A Area 15 tournament came down to an odd-man-out coin toss. Phil Campbell coach Craig Thomas got the lucky bounce of the coin and got to host the tournament, albeit at Tharptown since the Bobcats’ floor was ruined by a winter storm water leak.

The win of the toss also gave the Bobcats the top seed, and they got to play four-seed Colbert Heights and avoided the two teams that gave them the most problems this year, Colbert County and Danville. Phil Campbell wasted no time putting game one in the rearview mirror, jumping out to a 21-4 first quarter lead and extending that lead to 35-7 at halftime, allowing the Bobcats to rest starters for much of the game.

In game two, the Indians and Hawks were locked in a dogfight for the entire night, with Danville coming from behind to win.

Hannah Welborn led Phil Campbell with 16 points, followed by Macy Hardy with 15 points. Leela Baker added five points, and IsaBel Ashley three points. Mia Ambrosio, Sidda Rogers and Ayla Stowe scored two points each.

In other games:

Phil Campbell beat Winston County 50-34. The Bobcats led the Yellow Jackets 28-14 at halftime. Macy Hardy led Phil Campbell with 20 points, followed by Mia Ambrosio with 10 points.

Phil Campbell lost to Hackleburg, 47-35. Macy Hardy led the Bobcats with 15 points.
