“These girls just earned 3 consecutive Regional Championships in the strongest region in Texas!” Coach Jasmine Vasquez said. “They battled some unforeseen adversity and stuck it out like champions. We couldn’t be more proud of this group. We walked in with an army and the girls continued to protect the tradition of all the Lady Mustangs before them. As we celebrate the win, we also prepare for the true test with a State Title on the line. Time to go to work!”
