Patrick Henry girls take “Be Better” motto to heart
ROANOKE, Va. – For the past three years, their motto has been “Be Better”. And since Mike Hedrick became head coach, that’s all the Patrick Henry girls basketball team has done. Hedrick says the girls have bought into the “Be Better” philosophy on and off the court. If you do it one time, maybe it’s luck, but we’ve done it 3 years in a row and every year we’ve gotten better, beaten better competition,” Hedrick said. Patrick Henry will host Highland Springs at William Fleming High School in Roanoke on Tuesday night.
