The state title dreams of the HCHS boys basketball team came to an end Friday night in Danville as the Comets were ousted by Freedom-South Riding High School in the VHSL Class 5 state tournament quarterfinals. The game, played at Averett University’s Grant Center, saw the Comets play valiantly in defeat, 59-48. Above, Comet head basketball coach Sterling Williams watches the waning moments of the game with a despondent bench.
