Undefeated Lady Angoras claim District 31A Champs!
The Lady Angoras played their final three district games this last week. First the Lady Angoras faced the Cowgirls in D’Hanis on Tuesday, January 26th. Unlike the last match up with the Cowgirls back in December, the Ladies got a solid start, but only led by 1 point at the end of the first quarter. Both teams moved in to the bonus in the second quarter, where the Rocksprings girls used their free throws and some inside shots to move further ahead with a score of 24 to 18 at the half. Then the Lady Angoras stepped up their defense in the 3rd quarter and held D’Hanis scoreless for that quarter. Although by a narrow margin, the Lady Angoras controlled the game and beat D’Hanis 38 to 26. Noteworthy Stats: Claire Burleson - 15 points and 10 rebounds, Paige Elliott - 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Ava Grooms - 12 rebounds. Others scoring: Kiki Hilliard 6 points, Ailynn Infante, Grooms and Rebecca Ruiz 1 point each.
The team then faced the Medina Lady Cats in a makeup district game on their home court in Rocksprings on Thursday, January 28th. The more mature and experienced Rocksprings team was too much for the Lady Cats young team. The Lady A’s outscored Medina 27 to 12 at the half, and finished out the game with a final score of 71 to 35. Fouls and free throws played a big part of the game on both sides. Noteworthy Stats: Burleson - 25 points and 13 rebounds, Elliott – 18 points and 5 steals, Hilliard – 14 points and 9 assists. Others scoring: Grooms 10 points and Infante 4 points.
