Girls’ varsity basketball began their playoff run on Monday, Feb. 13, defeating Lamar 52-30 in their bi-district playoff game at Stratford.

The team, fighting to be state champions, is confident, yet cautious of the road ahead.

“The thing we need to work on the most right now is improving our transition defense,” senior post Megan Palmer said, “our coaches have really been getting on us about that.”

The girls finished the regular season with a record of 25-9, but failed to defeat longtime rival and district champion Seven Lakes.

 Their 5A area playoff match is against Elsik on Thursday, Feb. 16 at Morton Ranch, tipoff at 6:00 p.m.
