Coach Speak: "When you're in the county tournament you want to play good, and I'm not sure we really did. But you just want to get to the next round. We will have a tremendous challenge with West Point. They're a very good team. We've played them once and probably played one of our best games. We'll probably have to do the same again to beat them. That's what you play for. We're excited about the opportunity." — Good Hope coach Scott Adams
Up Next: Good Hope will play No. 3 West Point next Tuesday at 7:45 p.m. The game will be contested at Holly Pond High School.
