Faith Academy Lady Cougars Headed to State
Tonight is a BIG night for Faith Academy's Lady Cougars!
These young ladies have worked and played hard. This evening will be no exception as they take to the court and play for the chance to take state in TAPPS.
The last time the Lady Cougars went to state was seven years ago in 2013, so this is an especially exciting time for the team. Their rankings have earned them the chance to win state beginning tomorrow night.
The Lady Cougars have outscored their opponents 84-42 in the playoffs and they play Austin Waldorf in the TAPPS Class 2A state semifinal at 6 p.m. at Waco University High School.
The Lady Cougars defeated Bryan Allen Academy in the area playoffs and Bryan St. Joseph during the regional rounds last Saturday, setting them up for the opportunity to play for the state championship tomorrow night in Waco.
Their coach, Kalia Mancell is especially proud, offering that that the team's improvements, their belief in themselves and in the program along with their trust in Kalia as their coach, in her first full season has been a part of what's brought them to their opportunity to win.
Best of luck ladies! GO LADY COUGARS!
