Another week, another stupendous victory for the Lady Tigers. This time it was against the Avon Park Red Devils in the Regional Semifinals Round of the 5A State Championship Tournament. The Lady Tigers conquered the Red Devils by defeating them 56-25.

The first quarter was very competitive and close between the two teams. The Red Devils scored the first six points, but then the Lady Tigers got it together. At the end of the quarter the Tigers were up 11-10.

Going into the second quarter the Lady Tigers understood if they wanted to win they needed to play stronger on defense.

They only allowed the Red Devils to score four points in the second quarter and they scored fourteen points. The Lady Tigers had a 11 point lead over the Red Devils at the end of the first half 25-14.

In the locker room at half time Head Coach, Aisha Patrick, and Assistant Coaches; Jayne Enneking and Terry Patrick spoke with the team and reminded them to play strong defense and execute on offense and to stay focused.

That is exactly what the Lady Tigers did in the second half.

The score is now 32-18 Tigers up with 2:55 remaining in the third quarter here is a three pointer made by Alonna McGahee.

The Lady Tigers will be busy on Friday night when they travel to Orlando to compete against Lake Highland Prep in the Regional Finals Round of the 5A State Championship Tournament. The winner of this game advances to the Final Four in the Playoffs, so a lot is on the line.

Whether the Lady Tigers win or lose it has been a historical season for the team. To go from being eliminated in the second round of the District Championship to winning it next season is astonishing. We wish the best of luck to our Lady Tigers and congratulations for the extraordinary season y’all have had so far!
