Tuesday, Jan. 13.
Now 16-5 on the year, the Cowgirls also played their way into
the Texas Girlsí Coaches Association weekly 1A poll at #20.
After a Tuesday, Jan. 23 home date against Utopia, the Cowgirls

a conflict with the Uvalde County Junior Livestock Show.
On Tuesday, Jan. 27, the Cowgirls will head out to Comstock,
also for a scheduled 6 p.m. game.

The Cowgirls kept up the defensive pressure in the third, as
they extended their lead to 34-26.
Mallory McCollum and Sarah Craft were in double figures with 15
and 10 points for the Cowgirls, with eight from Shelby Gayre.
After maintaining a slim lead for most of the first half on
Friday at Roy Kile Gymnasium, the Cowgirls pulled away in the
