Wrapping up district title
Last week the Billies defeated Boerne for the second time this season.
“It was a little bit of redemption and a great team effort,” head coach Carrie Grona said. “Last year when we were there we just slightly lost but getting in that locker room it was a different feeling.”
In the 60-42 win, Grona earned her 100th win.
“Those 100 wins are about the players and how they have worked their tail ends off to change the program mentally and physically,” she said. “It’s about their dedication and not about what pertains to me.”
Sophomore Mia Torres led the Billies with 18 points followed by senior Hannah Wilson with 14 and senior Abby Spurgin with 12.
Torres also added four steals and three assists.
“Mia played like Mia can play” Grona said. “She’s been playing well the last four or five games. She has a lot of confidence in herself.”
Assists were the name of the game as five players contributed three each.
“We were able to distribute the ball well, both offensively and defensively,” Grona said.
