Clear Springs vs Langham Creek Regional preview

Langham Creek has surprised many people, I'm not one of them because when I watched Briley Perkins and Dyani Robinson start as freshmen last season, the heat they brought on both ends and the maturity they showed off the top as well as the desire, well I knew they would be in the hunt with GPR Texas Top 20 player Kayla Owens, who was out last season with a knee injury

Owens had a 3 for all in the quarterfinals dropping 4 and a couple of more were in and out but the stuff this young lady has done over the years since I first saw her in the 7th grade has been amazing. Add Dezi White and Mariel Wade to the equation and this starting 5 is solid with players that can score and defend

They got here for the first time in, well forever I believe but I'm not 100% sure as they knocked off TABC #14 Hightower and #6 Seven Lakes so to be honest, you can't really count them out against #2 Clear Springs, or can you?

Tasharian Robinson and Sierra Cheatham have been on my radar since the 7th grade, wait Robinson was in the 6th grade playing up and I simply knew that they were going to be D1 players, well as well as Owens, at a very young age.

The Chargers love to bring heat on defense, that's been their style forever and that old saying "if you can't stand the heat" is one of the main reasons their ranked #2 in the state.

Talented '18 PG Dymond Gladney has simply gotten better each year, one more time folks, "the game starts at the one" and her ability to run a team as well as set teammates up is among the best in the state plus she can take over a game offensively if needed. Add the much improved JaNay Redic to the equation and game one should be exciting
