With only one game remaining as of press time, it is now clear to see who is in and who is out in terms of basketball playoffs for the ladies. As good fortune would have it, six of the area’s seven schools have qualified for the postseason. Unfortunately, the Lady Brahmas of Stockdale will miss out this year.

In Class 5A, the East Central Hornets had an interesting season under new Head Coach Ginger Hartman. The Hornets put together a 10-18 overall record, and were 3-6 in district play. While not what the team had hoped for, it was still enough to grab the fourth and final playoff spot from District 28-5A. East Central will draw a No. 1 seed in the first round of playoff competition, and will certainly have its work cut out in order to stay in the postseason.

Floresville had a terrific year once again, amassing a 22-10 overall record, and a District 29-4A mark of 12-1. As of press time Monday, the Jaguars were alone atop the standings, but the Lady Panthers of Medina Valley are nipping on their heels. The two teams were scheduled to play Feb. 4 in Medina Valley. A Jaguar win would give sole ownership of the district title to Floresville, and Medina Valley would finish second. If Medina Valley gets the “W,” however, the teams split the district title. The Lady Panthers would then enter the playoffs as the No. 1 seed, with Floresville at No. 2.

The Lady Bears have been state-ranked throughout the year, and can boast an impressive 24-5 overall record. The team from La Vernia has been perfect in district play at 9-0, and was primed to finish out an unbeaten district season Feb. 4 in Poteet. Sam Houston finishes second in 28-3A, two games behind La Vernia.

District 28-2A is always exciting, and this year proved no different. The state-ranked Hallettsville Lady Brahmas secured first-place honors with a 2-point win over Poth last Tuesday, but the Pirettes will finish solid, and were 9-2 in district play at press time. It was just ahead of their final regular-season game, a district meeting with Luling.

Nixon-Smiley had its share of ups and downs this season, but still played well enough to grab the fourth and final spot in 28-2A behind Hallettsville, Poth, and Karnes City. The Lady Mustangs were set to close out the season at home against Hallettsville, but the outcome has no effect on the finishing order of either team.

The sixth and final team to make the playoffs from the area is Falls City. With the Beaverettes’ 71-22 win over Kenedy last Friday, Falls City clinched the District 30-1A championship. Class 1A sends just three teams into the playoffs, though, so the Beaverettes will enjoy a first-round bye before returning to action in the area championship round.
