The Lady Cats basketball team lost their first district contest to go down at the SSHS Main Gym home to Texas High on Friday, Dec. 17. 

Coach Erica Delley’s squad kept pace with the Lady Tigers through most of the first two quarters, but Texas High managed to pull away going in to halftime 32-18. 

Sulphur Springs could not keep up with the Lady Tigers in the second half and fell to Texas High 55-30 for their second straight loss to open district play. 

The women’s basketball team played tough defense all game long, but turnovers and missed shots gave way to a hard-fought loss at the SSHS Main Gym. 

Addyson Caddell lead the Lady Cats in scoring at 11. Kaylee Carter racked up nine points in the loss, seven of which came in the second half. 

E’dream Jones and Aaliyah Cheatum both got four against Texas High.

Jasmin Taylor and Kyra Carter rounded out scoring for Coach Delley’s team with three and two points, respectively. 

The home-loss to Texas High drops the Lady Cats basketball team’s season record to 0-17 (0-2 district). 

Next up, Sulphur Springs will be back on the road Monday for a mid-afternoon match-up with the Marshall Lady Mavs. 

That game is set to tip off Monday afternoon at 2:30 P.M. and follows the junior varsity contest at 1 P.M.
