Locked out of their locker room, the Lambert girls basketball team had nowhere but in the empty hallway to let out their elation, and it came out in one screaming wave that stabbed the ears. That is the beauty of youth: it exists in the present, not concerned with processing all the unexplainable, thrilling machinations that produced the program’s first region championship ever with a 59-58 victory against North Forsyth on Friday at Milton High School. Lambert head coach Jaime Fisher then walked into that hallway caught somewhere in the middle.
