What a big night for the Lady Cats. With a solid 59-38 win at home over Longview Friday evening, January 29, the Lady Cats won a part of the district basketball championship with Hallsville and Mount Pleasant.

Because of having the best head-to-head record against the other two teams, the Lady Cats will go into the playoffs as the #1 seed from District 15-5A. Mount Pleasant is the #2 seed, Hallsville the #3 seed and Texas High is the #4 seed. The top three teams all ended the district campaign with 9-3 records.

The Lady Cats are 15-7 for the season. They will play the #4 seed in district 16-5A in a bi-district playoff game sometime between February 11 and February 13.

The Lady Cats got off to a blazing start against Longview Friday. The Lady Cats were up 17-3 after the first quarter and 27-5 at the half. They extended their lead to 42-17 after three quarters and then withstood a Lady Lobos three point barrage in the final quarter for the 59-38 win.

Kenzie Willis led the Lady Cats with 19 points. Dalanee Myles scored 11 points. Bre’Asia Ivery and Addisyn Wall both scored 9 points. Baylie Large had 6 points. Addy Lamb had 3 points. Nylah Lindley had 2 points. Longview’s Cree McLemore hit 7 three-point baskets and finished with a game high 22 points.
