The Mansfield Sr High Lady Tigers have ended their 2019-2020 basketball season with a 6-18 total play record which was a “two win improvement from last year”, 2-12 in conference play, and a first-round bid in the Sr District Tournament. Coach Joshua Bryan gives us the rundown of the season. “Even though we didn’t increase in the win column as we wanted, we showed improvement in many areas this season. During the 2019-2020 season, we missed three wins by less than five points including a double-overtime loss at Cedarville. From where we were a year ago, that’s a nice leap forward from last season.”

Proving that the Lady Tigers have grown in their outside scoring ability, the girls went from 41 made three-pointers in 2018 to 85 one season later. “We had four different Lady Tigers score over 100 points this season, and two of them had over 200. Another improvement was only having two girls score 100 points last season and one over 200. We scored just 45 points shy of 1000 points for the season, after only scoring 627 points last season.”

Another area of improvement for the Lady Tigers was their ability to steal the ball. “We had a total of 240 steals for the season which was an increase of 91 from last year. Our greatest growth was something we stressed a lot during the season; rebounds. We rebounded much better this year, increasing our rebounding total for the season by 208 total rebounds from 2018. These areas of increase in a single season speak volumes about the hard work our Lady Tigers put in since last year. We will continue to grow and get better for the 2020-2021 season.”

Brooke Wright

Some stand out performances this season from the Sr Lady Tigers were: Brooke Wright who set the single-game record for blocked shots with seven in their game against Hackett. She ended the season with 33 blocked shots. Makayla Strutton ended with 233 points and 120 rebounds. Danielle Lillie tied the single-game record for steals in a game with nine against Hackett. She ended the season with 50 total steals and 243 points including 40 made three-pointers. Chloe Creekmore ended with 107 points and 106 rebounds. And Sadie Roberts ended with 71 deflections, 54 steals, and 145 points.

The Lady Tigers will be moving to a new conference and division next season as they join the 2A with the following conference opponents: Lavaca, Acorn, Mountainburg, JC Westside, Magazine, and The Future School of Fort Smith. “We will be getting back to the grind with summer basketball as soon as possible. Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Lady Tigers this season!”
