A-8 district basketball: Seffner Chr. cruises into final; Hernando Chr. overmatched

SEFFNER — In a Class A, District 8 semifinal Thursday, Bradenton Christian dominated Hernando Christian 62-26 to earn a spot in Saturday's final. Despite a tough loss, the Lions (12-10) have eight players returning next season.

In the other semifinal, Seffner Christian routed Citrus Park Christian 80-15. The Crusaders (19-6) will play Bradenton Christian (20-5). From scoring 24 in the first quarter, to holding the Eagles to four points in the first half, the Crusaders showed dominance on both sides of the ball.

"They hustled harder today than I have ever seen all year," Seffner Christian coach Greg Fawbush said.

With a score of 46-4 at halftime, it was tough for the Eagles to get generate offense.

In the fourth quarter, the Crusaders were getting the ball to sophomore forward Tesha Hanson, helping her make history. Hanson scored her 1000th career point, making her the first sophomore in Hillsborough County girls basketball history to reach this feat.

"I think I am in shock," said Hanson, who finished with 30 points. "I knew I could do it, but I never thought it would be this soon."

Sabrina Whiting added 28 for the Crusaders, scoring 14 in the first quarter.
