The Lady Rams have nothing on the line in their Senior Night tilt with district-champion Kennedale in the girls’ district finale that tips off at 6:30 p.m. at the MWHS gym, other than being the first district teams to hand the Lady Kats a district loss should MWHS prevail.
Even a win over Kennedale coupled with a Springtown loss – which would leave both Springtown and the Lady Rams with identical 7-3 records – would not help the Lady Rams climb out of third place since Springtown holds the tiebreaker over MWHS with a district sweep of the Lady Rams.
In the first meeting between the two teams, Kennedale ran past the Lady Rams, 89-44.
Lady Rams head coach Leslie Holman felt the team was “a little tense” in the big game on Friday against Springtown. She hopes the pre-game jitters will not be evident today.
“I told the girls in big games they have to come out ready to play,” Holman said. “It starts (mentally) with warmups. Springtown was ready to playlast Friday, but we weren’t.
“I trust we have learned from that.”
