The Lady Lions went into the weekend in a three-way tie for a playoff spot. They returned home victorious, earning a spot in the bi-district matchup with LBJ.
“Dripping Springs and Eastview were mental type of games,” Gigi Martinez said. “We had to come in confident because we lost two close games to Drip in district and won two close games to Eastview in district.”
On Friday night, they defeated Dripping Springs with a score of 48-44. Senior Alisa Greene led the team with 19 points and 7 rebounds. The Lady Tigers held the lead the entire first half, so the second half was a battle to regain some footing.
“It was all a mindset,” senior Alisa Greene said. “We’ve been down before and so we weren’t worried about it. We just had to stay calm and execute offensively.”
Then, on Saturday night, they came from behind again to beat Eastview 60-47 and secured a spot in the playoffs.
“It was just awesome!” junior Brooke Wells said. “We put in all this work all season and it paid off. At the beginning of the season, we were predicted to be 8th place in the district and we proved everyone wrong, finishing 4th and making it to the playoffs.”
Against the Lady Patriots, Greene and junior Rayanna Carter each scored 15 points and seniors Mariah Springer and Sonya Reyes contributed 10 points each.
“The girls showed incredible heart, as both games were come-from-behind wins, with the girls working extremely hard,” assistant coach Kyla Mills said in an email to LHS staff.  “You would be proud as to how the LHS student-athletes represented our school [and] the Lion heart.”
It’s a quick turn-around, as the Lady Lions face LBJ tonight at 6 p.m. in the bi-district game at LBJ in Austin.
