ABILENE â€” One of the few blemishes on the Highland girls basketball team's outstanding season came in the title game of Highland's tournament in early December when the Lady Hornets lost to Garden City, 31-24.
Highland got a chance Saturday afternoon to avenge that loss in a rematch with Garden City for the Region II-A, Division II championship.
And this time, it was the Lady Kats who were left feeling blue.
Highland (31-4) answered every challenge en route to a 47-29 victory at Abilene Christian University, advancing the Lady Hornets to the Class 1A, Division II state semifinals.
