After winter weather postponed girls’ basketball games throughout Texas, the Redhawks will finally hit the court for the second round game against Carrollton Newman Smith at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Carrollton R.L. Turner

“Since we have not played for a week, we are trying to get back in the rhythm of playoffs and I think our play tomorrow will be crucial to how the rest of our season will go,” senior Kayla Pernis said.

After a week off of school due to Texas being covered in ice and snow, the team met virtually to talk, but had workouts to do on their own.

“We’ve had meetings on Zoom about the upcoming game and what to expect. We have also watched film on our opponent,” junior Ashley Anderson said. “During the break we had a few workouts and stayed in touch with the coaches to keep our mental IQ strong.”

The team was able to meet once in person prior to Saturday’s top-off. 

“Before our game on Saturday, we had practice on Friday,” Pernis said. “Although it was obvious we had taken a break, we were still focused while scouting and executing our game plan for the next day.
