For the first time in the history of the program, the McKinney North girls basketball team has earned a berth to the UIL 4A State Tournament. After an undefeated season in district, the Lady Bulldogs fought their way through playoffs into the regional championship where they defeated The Colony High Cougars. The road behind them may have been long, but it’s only getting tougher from here.
North (28-4) will travel to Austin this week to compete in the Frank Erwin Center at the University of Texas campus. The Lady Bulldogs’ first challenger will be the Northside Brennan Bears who went 34-1 all season, earning a spot in the tournament for the second year in a row. Tipoff is at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27 and tickets for the game can be purchased through the Texas Box Office.
General tickets are $12 per game, and All-Tournament tickets can be bought for $75. For more information on purchasing tickets, parking and other general information visit the UIL Tournament website.
