                                15th Final Four for Lady Bucs Basketball

                                                       By Wayne Wood
   The Hoover Lady Bucs Basketball program is a very proud and storied history of success. Since its first season in the late 1970’s, the Lady Bucs have never had a losing season although they had a few just above average years.
   With the exciting victory in the Northwest Regional over Sparkman, the Bucs advanced to their 15th Final Four to be held at the BJCC or Legacy Arena in Birmingham. Head Coach Krystle Johnson has been there as a Lady Buc, Lady Buc assistant coach, a head coach at Huntsville High and now for the first time as a head coach for the Lady Bucs (which is also her first season).
   There is an opportunity for Hoover to tie the AHSAA state championship all-time large school record of 5 titles held by Decatur. Notice that I didn’t mention the smaller schools title records-just the largest of Alabama girls high school basketball. The Lady Bucs are tied with Jeff Davis of Montgomery with 4 titles each at present.
   The Final Four Appearances of 15 came in the years of 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1993, 1995, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and this year of 2016.
   They were state champions in 2001, 2010, 2012, and 2013 and were runner-up in the years of 1990. 2000, 2003, 2009, and 2011. Obviously, a proud record which our girls intend building upon.
