NORTH RICHLAND HILLS: The Birdville Hawks take on the Azle Hornets on Friday night in Birdville’s Gym. — The Hawks are looking to get back on track after a close loss to district rival Byron Nelson on Tuesday night’s OT loss at Byron Nelson. The loss handed Birdville their first district loss of the season, making their district record 7-1. The Hawks need to win out from here on out the final 7 regular-season games of the season if they want to at least share a spot with Byron Nelson as the district champions.
— “It would mean achieving our goal as a team, to win district, it would mean so much because no Birdville varsity basketball team has won the district before, the closest a Birdville team came to doing it was the 2001-2002 Birdville Guys team” Senior Star Point Guard Jimmy King said on Friday morning. A win tonight for Birdville would only mean they need 6 more wins here on out, and according to Coach Jeff Fitch it would mean: “Getting back on track after a tough loss to a great basketball team”.
