DISTRICT 28-3A BASKETBALL
Although locked in at the fourth place spot, Cotulla’s playoff opener was still in the air late Tuesday night as results from district play in the final outings of the year can still change postseason scenarios.
Seedings in District 27-3A, who the Cowgirls will face at bi-district, were still unsettled early Tuesday. Jourdanton and Poth swapped spots atop the standings as the Squaws took sole possession of first while Poth slipped to second place.
In Cotulla’s 28-3A, the Cowgirls still have a shot at moving up to the third seed if Natalia can beat Hondo in their final contest and if Cotulla tops rival Dilley Tuesday evening.
If Cotulla ends up in the fourth seed and Jourdanton secures the 27-3A title, their bi-district clash is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, February 14 in Pearsall.
The Cowgirls ended up splitting district outings last week, crushing Natalia 57-24 and losing the season series to Crystal City in another tight contest, falling 59-58.
Cotulla fell behind early, trailing 19-8 in the first period but stormed back in the second and third periods. The Cowgirls cut the margin to 32-28 at the half and then outscored the Lady Javelinas 20-6 in the third to grab a 48-38 lead going into the final stanza.
Crystal City, however, swung momentum in the fourth and outscored Cotulla 21-10 down the stretch to claim the one-point 59-58 victory.
The Cowgirls closed out the regular season Tuesday evening at home against the Lady Wolves.
