DEFENDING STATE CHAMPS FALL
- The Manvel Lady Mavericks faced the No. 2 state-ranked North Shore Lady Mustangs (32-2) in the Class 6A Region III quarterfinals and came up short in their bid to defend their state title.
The Lady Mavs (28-8) won the Class 5A state crown last year and were hoping to repeat, but a fast and athletic North Shore squad knocked off the Lady Mavs 63-40.
