Bulldogs Spirit Carrying Chapel Hill To State

The Chapel Hill boys basketball team is treading in unfamiliar territory right now. They are the first ever Bulldogs basketball team to reach the state tournament. How? Well, look no further than their mascot.

Courage, tenacity, loyality... all terms that describe a Bulldog.  They are also well suited to describe the 2007 edition of the Chapel Hill Bulldogs basketball team.

"You know I never really thought of that stuff," Chapel Hill head coach Mike Brewster said, "but if that is actually the attributes of a bulldog then we do fit it.  All 15 guys on the team just work hard and never give up and get along great and stuff, and they're great guys to be around."

"We can be down by no matter how much and we never give up,no matter what time of the game," said Chapel Hill junior Chris Mass.

They proved that by overcoming an 0-4 start, to win 30 of their next 33 games, including 15 straight. And after coming up short in last year's regionals, the Bulldogs are now statebound.

 "I feel great," said Chapel Hill junior Jaafar Brown.  "I think it's like a dream come true."

"Knowing that we're the first team in Chapel Hill history to go to state," said Chapel Hill junior T.J. Riley.  "It makes me feel good."

The Bulldogs play Hardin-Jefferson in the 3A state semifinals Thursday at 2pm at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin.
