With a score of 47-45, the Varsity Basketball Girls suffered a lost to the Canyon Eagles in the 10-5A State Championship game last Saturday in San Antonio. With the best record in MISD of 37-3, they advanced further than any other team in the district.

“I’m so crushed for our kids,” Head Coach Kit Martin said. “I will forever feel like the best team did not win that day, which is the hard part for me to swallow. But I am so proud of this crew. They were phenomenal all year long.”

Senior Chennedy Carter, who fouled out with 2:21 left in the game, said the team could’ve played smarter.

“We prepared a lot for that game,” she said. “We worked our bodies too hard, when we could’ve relaxed a little more.”

The team lost in the final minutes by two points.

“It was a very successful season,” senior Taylah Thomas said. “We accomplished a lot. We started off the season with a big win against Duncanville at their home court.”

Martin said she is proud of the girls.

“Every season has its own entity,” she said. “You can’t compare it with another.”

Carter will play in the McDonald’s All-American game on March 29.

“In a few weeks, I will go to Chicago for the game,” she said. “Then I will go to New York for the Jordan Brand Classic. From there I will go to Phoenix for the Three-Point Shootout, then I’ll return to graduate and start my season at Texas A&M University.”

Junior Lauryn Thompson said she’ll miss the seniors.

“Playing with the seniors my last three years has been fun and very eventful,” she said. “I’m excited to see them move on to new things.”

Martin said she’s excited for the next season.

“I’m extremely proud of a team that beat out 250 of 251 teams to be number one,” she said. “Our returning kids are already hungry to prove themselves and carry our team to titles, starting with a district title. We aren’t backing down one bit.”
