Despite getting a 15-point, 15-rebound performance from Maddie Mitschke, the Paradise Lady Panthers were unable to hold off Holliday Friday in a 31-30 loss.

After leading 13-10 at halftime, Paradise managed just four points in the third quarter. Holliday outscored the Lady Panthers 22-17 in the second half.

Mitschke was the only Paradise player to finish in double figures. Hannah Beth Pearson added eight for the Lady Panthers.

Paradise finished the regular season at home Tuesday against Jacksboro. If the Lady Panthers beat the Tigerettes, they will square off with Nocona Friday in a tiebreaker for third place in District 8-3A.


The Jacksboro Tigerettes used a big second half to pull away from Boyd 72-36.

Jacksboro outscored the Lady Jackets 39-16 in the final two quarters.

Boyd hung around for most of the first half, trailing 33-20 at halftime. But the Lady Jackets went cold in the second half.

“The fourth quarter we just couldn’t buy a basket,” said Boyd coach Erica Warner. “My girls played hard though and never gave up.”

Macey McCune led Boyd in scoring with 12. Paytin Bullard finished with 11.

The Lady Jackets closed out their season at home Tuesday against Holliday.


Poolville outscored Chico 32-12 in the first half to take down the Lady Dragons 50-35.

Chico tried to mount a comeback with a 17-point third quarter, but it was not enough to overcome the 20-point halftime deficit.

No Lady Dragon scored in double figures. The loss eliminated Chico from playoff contention.

The Lady Dragons travel to Perrin Tuesday for their regular season finale.


Cate Zuniga scored a game-high 26 points to lead Slidell past Prairie Valley 44-16.

The Lady Hounds lost guard Bailey Meyer four minutes into the first quarter to an ankle sprain. Coach Lance Shelton said other girls stepped up and did a good job playing without Meyer.

Shelton said he expects Meyer to be back for the playoffs. Slidell has already clinched the District 21-A title and has a first-round bye.

The Lady Hounds held Prairie Valley scoreless in the third quarter to seal the victory.

The win improved Slidell to 22-6 on the season and 11-0 in district. The Lady Hounds travel to Gold-Burg for their regular season finale Tuesday.
