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."

Next up is John Cooper on January 8th at home.
