Maverick Girls' 7th Grade Basketball wins the Kinkaid Invitational Tournament.
The Mavericks opened up the bracket on Friday with a 32-4 victory over TH Rogers, and followed up with a 20-11 win against St. Francis. On Saturday the Mavericks went back to work and took out Second Baptist 25-13 to get to the finals against tournament host Kinkaid Falcons.
In the final game after being tied up 8-8 at the end of the first period, the Mavericks took a 12-10 half time lead they would never relinquish. Going into the fourth quarter St. John's was up 18-14 and continued to foil the Falcons offense with outstanding team defense.
"My girls played great defense," said Head Coach Brenda Mercado. "We shut them down when we had to."
