WAXAHACHIE

Her coach said it last week after back-to-back 20-point games. Mya Williams proved that head coach Lesli Priebe was correct, yet again.

She is no longer playing like a freshman.

Williams went toe-to-toe with Mansfield Legacy point guard Harmoni Turner, one of the more prolific scorers in the state, Friday night at George W. Solis Gymnasium.

And though they both posted a game-high 24 points, it was Williams' Lady Indians who bested the Lady Broncos, 63-57.

Waxahachie outscored Legacy 26-19 in the fourth quarter to pull off the come-from-behind win in the final game the Lady Indians will ever play in the GSG.

The Lady Indians close out the regular season Tuesday, Feb. 6 on the road against No. 1 Mansfield Timberview and will play in their new digs at the new high school next season.

On Friday, Rayna Ross added 11 points to Williams' 24 and Sarah Bush chipped in 10. Diamon Atchison finished with eight points, Jordan McGee had six, and Destini Washington and Cassidy Morgan both had two.

Cyliest Smith and Keslyn King joined Legacy's Turner as the only three Lady Broncos to reach double digits.

The victory moved Waxahachie, who is already cemented into the No. 3 spot in the district standings, to 23-9 on the season and 10-3 in District 10-5A. It also helped (15-12, 7-6) Midlothian keep a hold on its fourth-place spot in the district playoff race. The Lady Panthers own a one-game lead on the Lady Broncos with one game to play.
