The Lanier Lady Bulldogs received a very special recognition this morning. The undefeated 2010-2011 girls basketball team and their coach, Jonas James Jr., received the "Above and Beyond" Award during the Hinds County supervisor's meeting Monday morning.
The team won the 5-A State Championship back in March. During their undefeated season, the Lady Bulldogs won thirty games!
Coach Jonas James Jr., says, "It feels very great to be recognized by the board of supervisors, anytime somebody does anything like that for you, you need to thank them and show them how appreciative you are and we're really appreciative for them recognizing us with this resolution for winning this state championship."
The Lady Bulldogs won the school's first championship trophy in more than forty years.
