For its young roster, Highland Park is trying to turn some lopsided nondistrict losses into valuable learning experiences.
The Lady Scots continued to take their lumps against tough opponents during a 61-18 loss at McKinney on Monday. That came on the heels of an 82-38 defeat last week at Mansfield Legacy in which HP trailed 33-8 aft the first quarter.
The hope is that the Lady Scots (4-6) will mature by the time District 11-5A play gets underway in two weeks. Prior to that, they will complete in the Culwell Invitational tournament beginning Thursday in Garland, where HP will face Rowlett in the first round.
