“Mansfield is always good and I am glad our kids go to play against some tough competition.  Amarillo, Colleyville Heritage, and Argyle are all in our region and are probably the top 3 in the region,” Mourning said. “They all have kids who can really play, and it was great for our kids to go out and compete against those top teams. 

“I am very happy about the girls turning it around. We just fell behind on Day 1 to catch up. We will use this as a learning tool and move on to the next tournament this weekend in Granbury.”

The Ladycats Black and Orange teams are in the Lady Pirate Spring Classic at Harbor Lakes in Granbury Friday and Saturday, March 1-2.
