The Mexia Ladycats are showing that this year’s team is a contender after taking third place in the gold bracket of the Aggieland Invitational Basketball Tournament last weekend in Bryan/College Station.
Mexia closed out play Saturday afternoon against Hardin-Jefferson, putting away the Lady Hawks 46-39 in the third-place game.
Mexia trailed by two, 16-14, after the first period, but held the Lady Hawks to only five points in the second, thanks in part to the strong pressure defense by the Ladycats. However, the Crimson and Black struggled a little on offense, but they did manage to cut the two-point deficit down to one at the half and only trailed the Lady Hawks 21-20.
