Scenes from the regional tournament

The Lady Bison faced Hitchcock in the first round of the playoffs and then district competitor Teague for the final game. After already having faced Teague twice this year with one win for each team, the game was almost guaranteed to be close, and it was. The score was tied in the final seconds until a buzzer beater by senior Jordan Jenkins gave the Ladies a two-point victory and sent them to San Antonio for the state tournament this weekend.
