Lady Cats Basketball Coach Jeff Chapman will be getting his district champion Lady Cats’ team ready to play North Forney in a bi-district game. Coach Chapman said details are still tentative but they are looking at playing at Rockwall Heath on Monday at 6 p.m. Again that is not set in stone.
One thing that is not happening is a warm up game before the playoff game. Coach Chapman still remembers a knock down drag out warm up game against Emory Rains several years ago. It was an exhausted Lady Cats team that took to the court two days later only to lose by a wide margin. Coach Chapman said his team is warm enough after playing 29 games.
Coach Chapman said his team finished what they started by completing a 12-0 run in district play with Tuesday night’s 49-34 win over Mt. Pleasant in Wildcats Gym. The Lady Cats’ season record is 26-3 and they have won 19 straight games. The Lady Cats led Mt. Pleasant by only 5 points, 30-25, going into the fourth quarter. The Lady Cats widened the lead by outscoring the Lady Tigers, 19-9 in the final quarter. Coach Chapman admitted he was a little worried with just the five point lead. He said the back and forth game reminded him of the close game at Mt. Pleasant in mid-January. The Lady Cats eased his worries with the big fourth quarter.
