Highland Park won’t carry much momentum into the start of District 10-6A play, but the Lady Scots still have plenty of reasons for confidence.
They’ve dropped three consecutive games heading into the district opener tonight against North Mesquite. Yet a tough nondistrict schedule should have HP prepared for the rigors of league play.
HP has depth and balance, along with the experience of finishing second in the district a year ago. Plus, five of the eight teams in 10-6A have struggled so far this season, with only Mesquite Horn and Richardson looking like legitimate postseason contenders.
The Lady Scots (6-5) were no match for Lincoln in a 62-44 loss on Tuesday. Standout sophomore Kennedy Taylor had 27 points for the Lady Tigers, who led 40-17 at halftime.
HP will play two 10-6A games, including next Friday at Richardson Pearce, before spending the holiday break taking on an extremely tough field at the Sandra Meadows Classic tournament in Duncanville.
