FINAL 48: Broncos' dream season closes with state runner-up finish (WITH PHOTO GALLERY)



Despite coming up just short of their ultimate goal, the Broncos have had a storied season most teams never get to enjoy.

Holly Pond reached a state final for the first time in any sport, and its 29 wins are the most ever for a girls or boys Green and White basketball team. The Lady Broncos also won their first Cullman County championship since 1997.

"Our girls worked extremely hard all season long," Adams said. "They're special. I knew coming into the season they had a chance to be good. We became a tremendous defensive team as the year progressed. There were just so many special moments with this team this season. I'm so proud of them."

The admiration the coach has for his players is certainly reciprocated. Terry, playing in her final game as a Bronco, said Adams is not only a wonderful coach but a great person as well. 

"Coach Adams is a great Christian leader and he's a great coach," she said. "He always tries to prepare us our best. We fought hard. Just came up short today."

Cox took home All-Tournament MVP honors with her 11-point performance, while teammate Ivy Wallen also earned All-Tourney honors. Brittany Driver (Straughn) and Gabby Nicholson (Midfield) rounded out the honorary squad.
