Howard’s work ethic, defense key as Decatur looks to make playoff push

Published Thursday, October 26, 2017

This time last year, Decatur High School was not even a blimp on Cidnee Howard’s radar. After completing her sophomore season at Westlake High School, 230 miles away in Austin, Howard and her family moved to Decatur this past June. Along with her father Chuck, who is an assistant football coach at Decatur, the two began a new chapter in their lives.

In Decatur’s regular season finale against Argyle on Tuesday, Cidnee finished with a team-high 41 digs to help the Lady Eagles enter the playoffs on a high note.
