LAKELAND – A year ago, Madison County made its first state tournament appearance in school history.

The Cowboys lost to eventual champion Wildwood, 65-63 in a back and forth game.

On Tuesday, the second part of the newborn rivalry was even more contested as Madison County (25-3) beat Wildwood 62-60 in one overtime.

2019 Madison County guard Vincenta Mitchell sunk both free throws with 4.1 seconds left following a technical free throw called on 2020 Wildwood (18-12) guard Marcus Niblack. Despite a turnover by Madison County on the ensuing inbound, Wildwood couldn’t muster a good look with three seconds left and the Cowboys proceeded to storm the court in celebration.
