Highland girls reach semis at Key City event

November 22, 2013

ABILENE — They may play in the state’s smallest classification, but on Thurs-day the Highland girls bas-ketball team — ranked No. 1 in Class 1A, Division II — proved that it could more than hold its own against much bigger schools at the Polk-Key City Classic.
Highland ran its record to 7-0 by beating Class 4A El Paso Irvin 42-21 and Class 5A Odessa Permian 55-51 on the first day of the tour-nament, which ends Satur-day. In doing so, the Lady Hornets reached today’s championship semifinals.
Highland was scheduled to face San Antonio Stevens at 1 p.m. today at Abilene High School. A win would send the Lady Hornets into the championship game at 8 p.m. Saturday against the Jim Ned-El Paso Coronado winner at Hardin-Simmons University. If Highland loses today, it will play for third place against the Jim Ned-El Paso Coronado loser at 6 p.m. Saturday, also at Hardin-Simmons. Jim Ned is ranked No. 7 in Class 2A.
