Despite the loss to Schulenburg in the UIL 2A Region IV finals Saturday, the Harper Ladyhorns take away a note of winning.
“It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done,” said HHS head coach Gina Lumpkins after the match, quoting the artist Vincent Van Gogh.
“This is the quote behind our theme, ‘Love wins,’” said the coach. “This idea has carried us through the ups and downs of our season since Aug. 4.”
The Ladyhorns dropped all three games to Schulenburg in Saturday’s finals — 17-25, 25-27 and 17-25. The match was played in the Brenham High School gymnasium.
Harper had advanced to the regional championship contest by defeating London the day before, 25-14, 19-25, 25-16, and 25-22.
