After steamrolling its competition for the past several weeks, Highland Park needs just one more victory to claim the District 11-5A girls basketball title.
The Lady Scots (19-10, 12-0) remained unbeaten in district play following an 87-42 win over Carrollton R.L. Turner on Tuesday, in which Ella Patterson scored a game-high 25 points. Madison Visinsky added 17, while Riley Mae Herrod contributed 16. Patterson and Visinsky also paced the Lady Scots with 17 points apiece during a 70-25 drubbing of Carrollton Creekview on Jan. 25.
Having clinched the league’s top seed in the upcoming Class 5A Region II playoffs, HP will have two more tuneup games to close out the 11-5A slate, including Friday’s home finale against Thomas Jefferson.
