On Friday, Feb. 19 Lady Cats Basketball Coach Brittney Tisdell announced that her squad would finally be able to take on Royse City in the Area round playoff game on Monday, Feb. 22. The game is set to tip-off at 6:30 P.M. in Caddo Mills.
Lady Cats basketball were originally slated to take on Royse City on Monday, Feb. 15, but inclement weather forced the game to be postponed not once, but twice. Lady Cats Basketball Coach Brittney Tisdell said early in the week that the game could have potentially been played Thursday, Feb. 18, barring no school being held, but once again the game was postponed. On Friday Coach Tisdell confirmed that the Area playoff game featuring the Lady Bulldogs taking on the Lady Cats will be played Monday, Feb. 22 in Caddo Mills at 6:30 P.M.
The Lady Cats squeezed by Nacogdoches, 56-54 in Athens on Friday, Feb. 12. The Lady Cats were able to pull out the win despite the injury to Kenzie Willis late in the game, who scored 12 points in the victory. Coach Tisdell might have been all too happy for Willis and her squad to get some much needed rest during the week after a tight win versus the Lady Dragons in the Bi-District round.
The Lady Bulldogs shocked Midlothian, the #18 ranked team in the state, 42-38, in double overtime. The Lady Cats, the #1 seed from District 15-5A, are now 17-7 for the season. Royse City is the #3 seed in their district.
