“We played as a team. This was our best game so far. During halftime we all shared our opinions to help one another out, then our amazing coach, Coach Olan came in and gave us the game plan. We came out in the second half pumped up, and we pulled through. The fourth quarter was our quarter,” junior Forward Shannon Powell said.

With yesterdays win the Lady Highlanders will now face the Arlington Martin Warriors Friday at 3:30 p.m. in Odessa in the area round of the Class 1-5A girls basketball playoffs.
