The varsity girls took on state-ranked Lytle in their opening round and lost 59-33.
The second round contest was against the Lady Gobblers from Cuero and the Beeville girls came up short in a 47-37 tilt.
In the third contest the Lady Trojans faced off against the San Antonio Brackenridge Lady Eagles. It was a close game with the Lady Eagles edging the Lady Trojans, 41-37.
“The hometown girls continue to work very hard on basketball fundamentals and the process of installing a new system. The process is in positive motion and the girls’ basketball program continues to improve,” said Lady Trojan head coach Chuck Youngblood.
In the tournament’s final game, the Lady Trojans took the court against District 30-4A rival Miller.
The Lady Bucs played Beeville close, but the Lady Trojans captured a five-point win, 40-35.
“The Trojan girls played very well at times. The Lady Trojans are snake-bit with poor free-throw and lay-up percentages – issues that can be and will be repaired,” Youngblood said.
“The turnover/steal ratio continues to improve. In fact, the Lady Trojans repeatedly broke Lytle’s full- and half-court press with precision passing and a controlled tempo.”
The Lady Trojan varsity travels to Victoria on Friday night to challenge the Memorial Lady Vipers. The Beeville girls will begin district play on Tuesday with a road contest against the Ray Lady Texans.
