Congratulations to the Hillsboro Burros: my alma mater, and your Class 4A Tennessee state champions. Hillsboro beat Maryville today to win their second state championship in school history, against some improbable odds. Maryville not only came into Saturday’s contest as the prohibitive favorite (and 4 time defending champion), but also as the team with the nation’s longest winning streak, at 74. Maryville hadn’t lost since the week before Hillsboro’s last (and first) state championship, in 2003. The Burro Tech represents.
