SEGUIN -- Following a 71-52 loss to Hallettsville, the basketball season has come to an end for the Lady Mustangs of Nixon-Smiley.

The team picked up two solid playoff wins with a bi-district victory over Blanco, and an area championship over Van Vleck. In the region quarterfinals, however, Nixon-Smiley was paired up with Hallettsville, the team that grabbed the district title to finish ahead of Poth, Karnes City, and Nixon-Smiley.

Both teams played well during the opening period at Seguin High School, and when the buzzer sounded to end the first eight minutes of play, the teams were separated by just a point, as Hallettsville held an 18-17 advantage. The Lady Brahmas began to pull away in the second stanza, however, outscoring the Lady Mustangs 20-9, and taking a 38-26 lead into halftime.

Following the break, Nixon-Smiley played much better, and outscored Hallettsville by 7 points in the third. The Lady Brahmas still held a lead going into the final period of play, but there was time for a Nixon-Smiley comeback. It was not to be, though, as Hallettsville dominated in the fourth. The Lady Brahmas tossed in 21 points, while holding the Lady Mustangs to 7. The final buzzer sounded, and it was Hallettsville moving on to the Region IV tournament with a 71-52 win.

Tyhana Mejia led the Lady Mustangs with 21 points on the night, followed by Megan Guerra and Savannah Martinez with 12 points each. Alena Alvarez scored 4 points, Brooke Hester was good for 2, and Lexi Trammell scored on a free throw.

The Lady Mustangs end their season with an overall record of 18-15, and made a 6-6 run through one of the toughest districts in Class 2A. The team won a bi-district playoff game and an area championship. Nixon-Smiley will lose some key players to graduation, including Alvarez and Martinez, but will return a good core of juniors and several sophomores.
