It was a night of mixed results at The Nest on Tuesday as the Redhawks hosted Frisco for back to back District 9-5A games with the girls’ team getting a win, and the boys’ team narrowly losing.

First up it was the girls, who dominated their competition as they flew above the Raccoons in a 47-15 victory to move to 3-0 in district play.

“I thought we did really well and as the season has progressed each game we’ve come together more and more,” junior Maya Jain said. “And I’m just proud of us for playing together and fighting through the injuries we’ve had.”

On the boy’s side, it was the opening game in district play, but the Redhawks fell short to the Raccoons, losing by one point, 58-57. 

“I think that we showed out well for our first district game,” junior Myson Huff said. “Even though we were down by a lot in the first half we came together to put points on the board in the back half.”
