ANSON— e Munday Mogulettes, champions of District 16-1A, were eliminated, 40-26, by Highland, the No. 2 seed from District 13-1A, in the area round of the playoffs here last Friday.
“It was a tough loss against a great Highland team,” said Coach Richard Ramsey. “All respect to Highland, we just were unable to get shots to fall when we needed them. Sometimes in life that is just how things go though. It just wasn’t our night.”
Highland assumed command early, taking a 15-7 lead at the end of the first quarter and a 21-15 margin to halftime. Munday cut the deficit to 22-20 in the third quarter, but Highland made it 25-20 at the end of that period and extended its advantage in the final eight minutes.
Highland was scheduled to go up against District 14-1A champion Aspermont, 43-42 winners over Spur, in the quarterfinals.
“I am proud of these girls and the way they battled all season,” Ramsey added.“ These girls have been a joy to coach and I wouldn’t trade them for the world. All season they have grown and learned to come together as a team to accomplish some amazing feats. That is what it is all about and I couldn’t be more proud of these young ladies.”
The Mogulettes finished the season with a 20-14 record and Ramsey has high hopes for the future
“We had one senior (Maddie Mendoza) this year, and she has been a joy to coach,” he said. “She has grown a lot this year and become a great leader and teammate. She will be a tough one to replace, but I look forward to next year
and seeing what these girls are going to be able to accomplish. We have some UNFINSHED BUSINESS that we need to take care of.”
