Wilson County News

Although girls basketball playoffs will be well under way by the time the Wilson County News hits stands this week, a quick overview is in order.

Competing in Class 1A, the Falls City Beaverettes have been on fire all season long and rank in the state’s top 10. The Beaverettes dropped their first game of the year to Poth, but then ripped off 16 straight wins before dropping a game to Crawford in tournament play. That was the team’s only other loss of the season, and Falls City ran through the remainder of its non-district schedule with little resistance. In District 31-A, the Beaverettes dominated every team that stepped onto the floor with them, and easily won the district title.

Falls City earned a first-round bye in the playoffs, but will return to action in the area championship, as the Beaverettes take on the winner of the bi-district matchup between Charlotte and Center Point. The area championship will be played this Friday, Feb. 17, in Pleasanton.

Another team that has absolutely dominated opponents this year is the Poth Pirettes. While the Pirettes did have to endure some early-season speed bumps, the team built momentum heading into its District 30-2A schedule and never looked back. The Pirettes averaged more than 80 points per game throughout their district run, reaching 90 or more points four times.

Like their Falls City neighbors to the south, the Poth Pirettes also earned a first-round bye in the playoffs by virtue of winning their district title. Poth will enter the playoffs in the area championship, where they will play the winner of the bi-district game between Bishop and Hebbronville.

Stockdale and Nixon-Smiley both made a good showing this season, and both were strong competitors during the District 29-2A portion of their schedules. The teams finished in a three-way tie for second place with Luling, as Marion won the district title.

To break the tie, the teams engaged in a series of coin tosses. In the end, Luling won the coin toss, and was granted the second-seeded playoff position. Stockdale and Nixon-Smiley then met in a one-game playoff Feb. 11, with the winner receiving the third and final playoff position. It was another good game, but in the end, the Lady Mustangs of Nixon-Smiley took the win, 45-35, sending them into the playoffs.

The Lady Mustangs were scheduled to face Karnes City in a bi-district game Feb. 13 in Floresville. The winner will advance to the area championship to take on Skidmore-Tynan.

In Class 3A, the La Vernia Lady Bears struggled with a difficult schedule in the non-district season, but peaked at the right time, performing well in District 28-3A play. The Lady Bears finished third behind the state’s No. 1 team in Yoakum, and a good Sam Houston squad.

La Vernia was scheduled to face Hondo in the bi-district championship Feb. 13. With a win, the Lady Bears would advance to the area championship and face Navarro, the winner of District 26-3A.

The Floresville Jaguars had high expectations coming into the 2011-12 season, and the Hoop Troop has lived up to the hype. As of press time, the Jags held a season record of 26-5, suffering just two non-district losses and three district losses, two of which were to the district champion Lady Titans of Victoria East. Still, the Jaguars finished second in District 30-4A, and earned a ticket to the postseason.

As the district’s No. 2 seed, Floresville was scheduled to face Edison in the bi-district championship. The game was scheduled for Feb. 13 in Seguin. The winner of that game will advance to the area championship to face the winner of the game between Roma and Corpus Christi Tuloso-Midway.

Last, but certainly not least, are the Lady Hornets of East Central. The Lady Hornets had an up and down season, but made a solid showing in district play and advanced into the playoffs as the third seed from District 28-5A.

The Lady Hornets were scheduled to face Stevens in the bi-district round of play. The Falcons finished second in District 27-5A, and maintained an impressive season record of 28-6. The matchup was to be played Feb. 14 at Wagner, with the winner advancing to the area championship to face either Churchill or San Marcos.
