Summit takes down #1 Nimitz for Class 5A title

This may have been a suprise to most, but not the Lady Jaguars. Mansfield Summit has said all season that they were the team to beat in the State tournament and they proved it Saturday night. Led by TCU bound Starr Crawford, Summit handed No.1 Nimitz a 52-43 loss in front of 7,000 in attendance, at the Erwin Center in Austin.

Crawford scored 14 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and overshadowed the 6-foot-8 Baylor-bound Brittney Griner of Nimitz.

Timberview settles for silver medal in Class 4A

Mansfield Timberview got to the Class 4A state championship game by playing their best basketball of the season the last two weeks.
Unfortunately, for the Lady Wolves, that hot streak suddenly turned cold in the school’s first-ever state final. Timberview lost to Waco Midway 50-27 at the Erwin Center.
Timberview never had an answer for Midway’s big post, Cokie Reed, who finished with a game-high 17 points and 11 rebounds.
But the main culprit was Timberview’s shooting. The Lady Wolves made only 11 of 63 shots from the field as the 6-foot-4 Reed altered Timberview’s penetration in the paint. The Texas - bound Reed affected Timberview’s drives in the lane, but the Lady Wolves’ outside shots weren’t falling either.

Robinson takes out Argyle for Class 3A title

Rachel Hargis scored 20 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to lead Robinson over Argyle 49-33 on Saturday to win the Class 3A girls’ state championship in Austin.
The 6-foot-4 junior center dominated under the basket on both ends as Robinson held Argyle to just three field goals in the first half.
Mackenzie Roach added 13 points for Robinson (34-5), which won its second state title. Robinson’s other championship was in 1970.
Claire Pettibon scored 17 to lead Argyle (20-15). The Lady Eagles came in with the most losses in the state tournament, and their strong run through the postseason crashed hard in the first half when they went scoreless for nearly six minutes and hit just 3 of 17 shots.

Brock wins fourth state girls title in seven years

The Brock Lady Eagles won their fourth state basketball title in seven years Saturday, defeating Woodville 61-32 in the Class 2A final at the Erwin Center.
Kenisha Harris led all scorers with 27 points and the junior also grabbed 10 rebounds and had Woodville (32-5) scrambling to stop her in the paint. Harris was named the 2A tournament MVP.

Sudan wins 1A D-I title

Sudan’s Lacee Logan jumped on her sister’s back for a victory ride. A year after barely being able to run, she was being carried off the court as a state champion.
Logan led the Nettes to the Class 1A Division I girls title, scoring 16 points as Sudan rolled over Roscoe 71-38. That was after missing most of last season’s state tournament with a knee injury before playing just the final 11 seconds of Sudan’s loss in last season’s championship final.

Roby tops in 1A D-II

Tara Schroedter scored 15 points, and Roby held Neches scoreless in the first quarter, pulling away for a 44-34 victory in the Class 1A Division II girls final Saturday night.
Schroedter also had 10 rebounds. Kendra Pace added 15 points for Roby (34-3).
