Kre'Sean Hall and his Lakeside teammates made the most of their first appearance in a region championship game.
Kalen Williams and Hall combined for 23 points in the final quarter as the fifth-ranked Panthers rallied to knock off Heritage, 67-63, in the Region 3-AAAAAA title game Friday night at Evans High School.
"It's an amazing feeling," said Hall, a senior forward. "Coach always tells us not to get too high and not to get too low. They got excited when they went up and got too high. We stayed neutral. We got the result we wanted."
