Lion tamers

February 24, 2014

ABILENE — They’ve often battled for district championships in the past.
But on Friday, the stakes were even higher for High-land and Roby as the two old rivals met in a Region II-1A, Division II girls semifinal at Abilene Christian Univer-sity’s Moody Coliseum.
And unlike most of those earlier meetings, this one was no contest.
No. 2-ranked Highland (27-3) was in complete control from the opening tip, racing to a 12-0 lead before Roby got on the board with 4:57 left in the first quarter.

Highland begins defense of regional title vs. Lady Lions

February 21, 2014

They have run roughshod over their first two playoff opponents — much as they did consistently during the regular season — beating Santa Anna 73-26 in bi-district and 19th-ranked Cross Plains 62-35 in the area round.
Today, the No. 2-ranked Highland girls basketball team returns to yet another comfort zone — Abilene Christian University’s Moody Coliseum — where at 7 p.m., the Lady Hornets will begin defense of their Region II-1A, Division II title in 2013 that sent them to the girls state tournament in Austin for the first time in school history.
