The Lady Angoras advanced to the Regional Quarter Finals. The top three teams from District 31A all advanced to this level, showing the strength of our district. D’Hanis was on the other side of the UIL bracket, so the Lady Angoras would get a rematch with Nueces Canyon, the district’s third place team, who advanced from Bi-District to Area to the Quarter Finals. The teams agreed to play as close to home as possible, and met up in the Leakey gym on Thursday, February 25th at 6:30 p.m. The fans from both communities created and electric atmosphere that was deafening at times. Our own Lady A’s were prepped and ready! They came out strong in the first quarter by moving the ball down the floor and outscored the Lady Panthers 19 to 7. The pace of the game continued in much the same way, and the Lady A’s led at the half 31 to 12. It was the third quarter that the Panthers rebounded and pushed the pace with im- pressive scoring from their top players. They closed the gap to 9 points. However, the Lady Angoras would not go down on that night. They turned things back around in the fourth quarter. They upped their defensive play and took the ball to the hole! The 24 to 8 run would give the Lady A’s a final winning score of 68 to 41. Noteworthy Stats: Kiki Hilliard had 22 points and 6 steals, Paige Elliott had 20 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists. Others scoring were Claire Burleson with 12, Ava Grooms with 8, Amy Ortiz with 4 and Rebecca Ruiz with 2. This win sent the girls to the Regional Tournament!
