Highland plays Baird in Region 2 semis today

February 22, 2013

The Highland girls bas-ketball team has been here before. Two years ago, they were also at the Region II-A tourney at Abilene Christian University where they lost to Newcastle in the semifinals. This year’s team hopes for a much different outcome when it plays Baird in the semifinals at 7 p.m. today.
The ultimate goal will be to do something no Highland team has done — go to the state tournament in Austin. That means the Lady Hornets (29-4) must not only defeat Baird (26-6) but also beat Garden City or Eula, who play in today’s other semifinal, in the II-A final on Saturday.
