Tompkins comes out on top in Katy Classic

Due to my confusion on what time the U of H @ Rice game was, I missed the 3rd place and Championship games of the Katy Classic however the semifinal games between Colleyvile Heritage vs Friendswood and Seven Lakes vs Tompkins both kept  me on my toes.

Friendswood's Kayla Callaway was on fire scoring 19 as she helped fuel a ferocious comeback however Colleyville Heritage held on behind numerous scorers including sophomore sensation Bryn Gelrich,  add her as another 7th grader that I said big things were coming after watching her drop 7 or 8 threes in a game playing two years up, against a competitive team

 In  the other semifinal game, it was mainly back and forth between Seven Lakes and Tompkins, this was basically a district preview and I haven't looked at the brackets however I imagine with the right seeding, either has a great opportunity to make it to the Campbell Center, Seven Lakes appeared to be on the verge of opening it up as Tompkins didn't score for the first five minutes in the third quarter however the momentum changed when Sarah Goss entered and immediately paid dividends wit a backwards lay-up for an and one which definitely changed the momentum

In the 4th quarter Seven Lakes didn't score for the first five minutes and although they made a couple of runs, they came up short. Allison Goss led  all scorers with 22 while Brittany Panetti scored 13, Panetti also scored 16 in the championship game. The Spartans were led by Cydney Varner (12) and Michelle Fokum (11) in their 50-37 loss however Seven Lakes won the 3rd place game and again, the district race should be exciting,
