Girls’ basketball competed in the Mavericks Frisco ISD Tip-Off Classic over the weekend with the Redhawks going 3-2 in the tournament, finishing in fourth place.

“I feel like we played together and even though we lost I think we played best in the game against Martin,” junior Kayla Pernis said. “Even though they were probably more athletic than us, we were able to frustrate them and keep the game close.”

On Thursday the team played Denton Ryan winning 41-13. The Redhawks followed that up on Friday with wins over Poteet and Wylie before falling to Arlington Martin and The Village on Saturday.

“I was very proud of our team being able to play together and figure each other out,” sophomore Ashley Anderson said. “It was our first few games playing together and it was just good to see the team come together and play as a unit. I think we played our best against Denton Ryan because we had great team defense and forced a lot of turnovers. On top of that we knocked down shots and made smart decisions on offense.”
