Martinsville Girls Basketball Team ‘Runs The Table’ During Regular Season
The speed limit on Highway 7, for 27 miles of a 31 mile stretch between Nacogdoches and Center, is 70 miles per hour, and if the school zone speed limit of 35 isn’t flashing yellow caution lights, you may likely buzz right through Martinsville.
Not much to see really. You’ve got the post office, diner, and school on the main drag. Beyond that, plenty of cows and horses grazing for miles.
During high school, extracurricular activity for me was watching all sporting events and, of course, rooting for my alma mater. Admittedly, I didn’t really give a hoot about volleyball or wrestling, but being on the Yearbook staff as a photographer (and a bad one at that), attendance was indeed mandatory, so I grew to appreciate those sports.
Still, it’s football and basketball drawing the largest crowds, and after a 32-0 record, the Martinsville Lady Pirates basketball team will likely have more admirers than originally thought. That’s 32 wins and ZERO losses! A really rare and difficult accomplishment, set by a group of young ladies, far removed from the hub of major sports cities.
The defense of the team this season was smothering, when you consider they only gave up an average of 20 points per game! Now, the District 22-A Division I champs are revving up for the playoff run, and Classic Rock Q107 says congratulations on an incredible season, and here’s wishing you the best of luck during your quest for the gold.
