Taking on Cedar Hill at The Nest on Friday, the girls’ basketball team continued their win streak beating the Longhorns 41-32.

“It’s good in terms of kinda having a measuring stick, see where you were and kinda where you’re headed,” girls’ head basketball coach Ross Reedy said. “They beat us by 30 earlier in the year, and so to come back and beat them by 9 at their place, it’s good. “So from that standpoint, it’s really early, but it’s a step saying you know were getting a little better.” 

With Cedar Hill being a top 10 ranked 6A school, and the Redhawks already losing to the Longhorns earlier in the year, the win was extra special for senior Jezelle Moreno.

“We played them not long ago in the Hoopfest, and it was nice that we came back and got the win,” Moreno said. “Losing to them in Hoopfest was tough, Friday was a game to prove yourself.”

Even though the win over Cedar Hill brought a dose of payback, Moreno doesn’t want to read too much into the win. 

“It’s only the beginning of the season, so we need to keep that in mind,” Moreno said. “From how we’re playing now, I believe we will go far, but we need to continue to improve.”
