Lady Rattler Basketball Team to Travel to Austin High for Area Playoff

Last week’s rare “snowpocalypse” kept all playoff games from taking place but the Lady Rattlers are ready to get things back on track.  After several schedule changes, the ladies will take on the Steven F. Austin High Maroons Monday, February 22nd at 6:00pm.  It will be an unusual game for an Area matchup as most games are played at neutral sites but a coin flip and a shortage of facilities will put the Lady Rattlers at the Maroon’s gym with limited fans in attendance.

The Lady Rattlers beat the #2 Cibolo Steele Knights 45-34 in a battle that could have been a later round matchup if the Rattlers hadn’t suffered a rare district loss to NISD Brandeis in the second round of the 28-6A playoff-seeding tourney, forcing Reagan into a third place game against rival Johnson.  Reagan dispatched Johnson 70-41 to secure third in district and take on the Knights.

Austin High took first in District 26-6A and beat fourth place finisher in 25-6A Vandergrift 50-34 in their bi-district matchup.
