The CCS Varsity squads hit the ground running Tuesday night at the Mineral Wells City Gym to claim another victory apiece, bringing both teams to impressive records, Warriors reaching 12-6 on the season, and the Lady Warriors upping their wins to 16 to their one loss. The sole loss of the year came last week in Leander by a heartbreaking 1-point, so the Lady Warriors wanted to redeem themselves and did just that in front of a home crowd.
The CCS ladies faced off against Victory Baptist Academy in a conference game, coming away with another impressive W. In a recent article, we shine a light on 3 of the standout Lady Warriors, Hena Spahic, Jersey Davila, and Elaina Buchanan. They came out against VBA to prove they belong in their respective rankings. Spahic had the hot hand racking up 25 points, 7 of which were free-throws. She also dished out assists, many of which were to fellow senior Buchanan, who was just behind Hena in scoring with a season-high 22 points and pulled down 10 rebounds. Davila, who is a problem for offenses everywhere, came out with 11 steals. Also tallying up some impressive stats was Kate Buchanan, with 13 rebounds to lead the team.
The CCS Lady Warriors came away with a 67-23 win keeping their first-place standing as they head into a matchup against Cornerstone Christian on Thursday on the road.
