Lady Cards up to No. 7 in state hoops rankings

The Harlingen Lady Cardinals have definitely been challenged in their past couple of games, but like true warriors they have continued to rise to the occasion.

They have also continued to rise in the latest state rankings as the Lady Red Birds now sit at No. 7 in Class 6A in this week’s Texas Association of Basketball Coaches and Tex Preps Basketball Magazine poll.

Thanks to close 49-42 win over Los Fresnos at home last Tuesday as well as a thrilling 42-41 overtime win over Brownsville Veterans on Friday, the Lady Cards are now an unbelievable 23-1 on the season and have won their last 13 in a row. Their one loss of the season came on Nov. 21 against San Antonio Clark during the McAllen Border Bash Tournament.

The only teams ahead of Harlingen in the rankings are Cibolo Steele (25-1), Amarillo (21-4), Plano West (22-3), Dekaney (23-1), Galena Park North Shore (23-1) and No. 1 Duncanville (24-0).
