Lady Cats basketball Coach Jeff Chapman said his team had seen presses all season but he added none was tougher than John Tyler’s full court man on man press unleashed on the Lady Cats in Monday’s 81-35 Lady Lions’ bi-district win Monday in Lindale. The Lady Cats had 34 turnovers. Still Coach Chapman said he was pleased the team put itself in the position to be in the playoffs. He said his seniors left their mark by teaching younger members of the team. Coach Chapman had to rebuild earlier than he wanted due to the injury to Desi Debase. He said he expects to see all the increased playing time for youngsters pay off in the long run.
