Lady Bobcats Grab the Top Seed
DONNA - The Edinburg Lady Bobcats captured the top seed in 31-6A with a 51-39 win over Weslaco.
Purple and red filled opposite sides of a packed Donna North gymnasium Thursday night. The occasion? A matchup between the top two teams in District 31-6A to determine seeding for playoffs.
Edinburg dictated the pace early on, but, at the midpoint of the fourth quarter, the Panthers brought the game to a two-point deficit.
The Lady Bobcats, led by Senior Guard Jenessah Santa Maria, continued their aggressive play, getting them to the line on multiple possessions. Great defense on the other end of the court saw the bobcats' lead increase. When the clock hit zero, the red side of the Donna North gymnasium erupted, as Edinburg locked in the top seed.
The Lady Bobcats will head into the playoffs as the number one seed next week where they will take on the Hanna Golden Eagles. Weslaco will be matched up against Los Fresnos.
