MILDRED — Mildred’s Lady Eagles continue to have one of the best season’s in the program’s history as Tiffany Kiser’s kids just keep rolling toward the playoffs.
The Lady Eagles dominated yet another game in the District 18-3A race Friday night, cruising to their 22nd win of the season.
They're now 10-3 in the District 18-3A race and tied for second-place with Scurry-Rosser with one game left Tuesday night at Blooming Grove.
Kiser’s kids have already clinched a playoff spot and will probably play Scurry-Rosser to determine the No. 2 seed in the 3A playoffs, which begin Feb. 17.
Nine Mildred girls scored Friday on Senior Night in the Lane Gym, where the team's only senior, Lilli Hanna, was honored.
Tre Coppock, who has had a big season, led the way with 21 points, and everyone got into the act again as Mildred continued to have a balanced scoring attack from top to bottom.
Freshman Amy Adamson and Bailey Burks followed with seven points each. Hanna hit the boards and scored five points and Kylie McCaleb came off the bench and added five points. Kadence Cline dropped in four and Arianna Neason (3), Kenli Dalton (2) and Ivie Mason (2) all scored for Mildred.
Frost girls keep winning
The Frost Lady Polar Bears are in the middle of a tight race for the playoffs in District 19-3A, where four teams are in a logjam behind first-place Kerens, which has already clinched the title.
The LadyCats, who have been led all year by Kece Langley, Alexius McAdams, Kaylee Reed and Reece Wright, go into their final regular season game Tuesday with a 9-0 record in district.
They play at Italy on Tuesday and will begin the Class 2A playoffs next week as a No. 1 seed.
Frost is battling for a playoff spot, but the Lady Polar Bears are winning the battle.
They keep winning clutch games down the stretch and they won a huge game on Friday, beating Cayuga 34-28 in the Frost gym.
The Lady Polar Bears travel to Itasca for the final regular season game on Tuesday and if they win they’re in the playoffs.
If they lose it will come down to what Cayuga and Italy do Tuesday because four teams — Frost, Cayuga, Italy and Itasca are all alive for the final three playoffs spots behind Kerens.
The Lady Polar Bears knew they had to win Friday and Jennifer Cheek’s girls came through once again.
Kyra Cerda led the way with 15 points and Kinsley Fuller and Jimena Perez followed with an eight-points each on a night when the game dominated was by defense.
