Lady Lions lead 14-3A into the postseason
It is coming up on the second half of February, and for some girl’s basketball teams that means that it is playoff time. For conference 3A district 14, one playoff spot is up for grabs.
With 15 wins in a row, the Lady Lions are the undefeated district champs, but with this squad, that is simply not enough.
They will go into playoffs not having lost a game since the beginning of December. They will look to continue their dominating performance as they go into the postseason brackets, led by a host of seniors. These young ladies, Chloe Davis, Grace Duffer, Carleigh Reeves, and Carlee Ratcliff, have been key players for the New Boston Lady Lions since their freshman year. They will be facing Prairiland on Monday, February 17th in Pittsburg at 8 p.m.
Second place in the district is held the Paul Pewitt Lady Brahmas of Omaha. The Lady Brahmas are coming off a fantastic season for them led by senior DeDe Jones and juniors Sissy Jones, Mya Heath, and Calli Osmon. They have been a team that most opponents do not look forward to facing all year long. They have won 23 games so far this year and look to continue to raise that number. They will be facing the Mount Vernon Lady Tigers on Monday, February 17th in Pittsburg at 6 p.m.
The Atlanta Lady Rabbits will represent the district in the third place position. The Lady Rabbs have had a good year going for them going 16-7 overall. They are a good team and are on a four-game winning streak right now and look to take that steam into the playoffs. They will be facing the Winnsboro Lady Raiders in the Bi-District round, as they look to continue their win streak and go further into the playoffs.
Fourth place currently is up for grabs, with a tie between the Lady Hornets of Hooks and the Lady Bears of De Kalb. Both of these teams are strong teams that work well with their teammates. These two teams played each other twice in the regular season, with very different outcomes. The first meeting between them was on January 3rd in De Kalb. The Lady Bears put up a good fight, but ultimately the Lady Hornets fought and came out with the win 56-48.
25 days later they would meet again. This time the game was held in Hooks. In this contest, the Lady Hornets fought as hard as they could, however the Lady Bears fought hard and came out with the win 54-34 and evened the score. They will face each other one more time this Friday to determine who will get the fourth-place district position, and who will ultimately go to the playoffs. The winner of this game will face a very tough, state ranked Mount Pleasant Chapel Hill squad and their all-star shooter Mason Garrett. Chapel Hill was 12-0 and district champs in the regular season.
