Plains plays Kerens at 8:30 a.m. Saturday in Austin
AUSTIN — If the Plains girls basketball team needs an example of what it takes to win, or lose, a state championship, it need only look in its own back yard.
Really, even in its own district would suffice.
When the Cowgirls (29-3) take the court at the Frank Erwin Special Events Center at 8:30 a.m. today for the UIL Girls Class 1A state championship, it will mark the eighth straight season, encompassing four different schools, for a South Plains team to do so. Two of those teams, Sundown (2007) and Smyer (2010, 2011, 2013) are in Plains’ own district.
