After a week that brought a pair of victories, the Harper High School girls’ varsity basketball team is now sporting a 19-6 overall record, 2-1 in District 27-1A, Division II.

The Ladyhorns followed Friday’s razor-thin 44-43 win over Junction with a 36-24 decision at Center Point last night.

Harper will now host Nueces Canyon on Friday, then travel to Medina Tuesday. Both games will begin at 6:30 p.m.

The Ladyhorns currently hold down the 18th spot in the most recent 1-A poll conducted by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches.
