Happy Friday, and happy last day of the first semester of school! This semester has seemed to flown by, and once the break is over and we return to school, we will hit the ground running. Our winter sports will begin district play, and our spring sports will begin their tryouts and practices. I hope that each of you gets the chance to relax and spend quality time with your family and friends during the break!
On a recent Friday night, our Lady Tigers battled against Fort Bend Clements in what ended up being a very exciting game. Ja’Kayla Davis nailed a three-point shot to tie the game with nine seconds left on the clock, but in the end we were defeated by one mere point with a final score of 59-58. A recent night game was against the Sweeny Bulldogs and we came out on top with a score of 60-47. On Friday, Dec. 20, our Lady Tigers traveled to Stafford to take on the Spartans.
