Lakehill's Prince Giadolor.
The Lakehill Warriors took on Dallas Covenant at home on February 13. This was a huge game for the Warriors, knowing that, if they could defeat their rivals in this game on Senior Night, they would become District Champions for the first time in 15 years.
The Warriors were a little rusty after a week off and finished the first quarter down 6-8. They made a huge comeback to 26-8 in the second quarter, crushing Covenant with their press. The Warriors continued to dominate for the rest of the game, winning 68-51 and becoming District Champions!
Prince Giadolor had an outstanding game with 24 points, 4 assists, and 6 steals, while Johnathan Page scored a solid 19 points. Drew Norman had an impressive game with 11 points, 6 assists, and 4 steals, while Cole Ellis made 12 needed points for the team.
The Warriors kept up the pace over the weekend with a warm-up game against Bullard Brook Hill, one of the top 3A teams in the state. The Warriors fought hard and showed they were ready for the playoffs, winning 70-65 in an exciting overtime game.
The excitement continued on February 18 when the Warriors defeated Texoma Christian 65-51 to become Bi-District Champions for the fourth year in a row! The Warriors will face Denton Calvary in the Lakehill Gym on Saturday, February 22 at 4:30 p.m.
