By Yvonne Hartmann —
Playoff action will continue for the Fredericksburg High School varsity girls’ basketball team after the Billies defeated San Antonio Sam Houston on Monday night, 49-29, in the bi-district round.
The Billies will now face El Campo of District 25-3A on Friday night at 8 p.m. at the Goldie Harris Gym in Seguin in the area round of the playoffs.
Fredericksburg finished third in the District 27-3A standings behind Boerne and Navarro. Wimberley finished fourth.
Playing Sam Houston on Monday night in the Boerne Champion High School Gym, the Billies got off to a slow start before scoring in double digits in both the third and fourth quarter to take the win, 49-29.
“We were very tight and afraid in the first half resulting in 21 turnovers and shooting less than 20 percent from the field,” reported Carrie Grona, head girls basketball coach.
Fredericksburg and Sam Houston were tied 14-14 at the half.
“I’m very proud of how disciplined, calm and under control the girls played the second half,” Grona said.
In the second half, Fredericksburg took the lead, outscoring Sam Houston, 19-9, and sealed their win in the fourth when they led the scoring with 16 points to the Hurricanes’ six.
“It was a physical game, but we hit a couple of shots early and you could feel the tension being released,” Grona said.
