The Lady Cats Basketball Team Evens Season Record With Home Win Tuesday Over Mineola

The Lady Cats Basketball Team is trying to get back into the swing of things after some time in quarantine due to coronavirus. They struggled mightily in their lopsided loss at Liberty-Eylau Monday, November 23, in Texarkana. They also started out slow in the first half in their home opener against Mineola Tuesday afternoon.
