WAXAHACHIE

One more win.

That's all the Waxahachie Lady Indians basketball team needs to clinch a District 10-5A playoff spot after handily defeating Red Oak last Friday.

It is also the number of career wins shy head coach Lesli Priebe is from No. 500.

Waxahachie outscored the visiting Lady Hawks in three of the four quarters and tied them in the other during the 59-39 win Friday, Jan. 26 at George W. Solis Gymnasium.

The victory moved the Lady Indians to 21-9 on the season and, more importantly, 8-3 in the district standings. With three regular seasons games to go, they are two games clear of fourth-place (14-11, 6-5) Midlothian and three ahead of fifth-place (15-13, 5-6) Mansfield Legacy.

Meaning with one more win or a Legacy loss, the Lady Broncos cannot catch the Lady Indians. Of course, a win Tuesday night in Midlothian takes care of both of those and solidifies Waxahachie into no worse than the third spot in the final district standings.

Against (12-19, 1-10) Red Oak, Mya Williams exploded for a game-high 25 points, while Rayna Ross had 11 and Diamond Atchison tallied 10.

Sarah Bush added five points. Cassidy Morgan scored four, and Kaleah Young and Destinia Washington both chipped in two points, each.

For the Lady Hawks, Ariel Warren scored a team-high 12 points, while Lauren Lafitte added eight, Morgan Carr had seven, and Taylor Watkins and Aniyah Johnson each added six points.
