A strong performance across the board by the Lady Cats.

On Saturday, November 11 Lady Cats hosted #12 Mason. Mason was coming off of a 59-27 drubbing of Brady and being state ranked, it was expected to be a good measuring stick game for the Lady Cats.

In an extremely physical game, maybe best described by Ballinger parent Alisa Plumley as, “kind of a cross between Kung Fu, boxing and basketball."

Sydney Bowman’s 11 points and 4 for 6 shooting would lead the Lady Cats to 55-51 victory over the Cowgirls.

Ballinger would take charge early with 16-2 score in the first quarter. The rest of the game would see the Lady Cats fending off a furious assault from Mason trying to take the lead. Fouls by Ballinger helped to make the score closer than the game was overall. Mason was 23 for 34 from the line while Ballinger was 16 for 23.
