MOUNT PLEASANT — The Miller Grove Lady Hornets scored their first playoff win since 1986, downing Karnack 33-31 here Tuesday night.
    Alma Del Castillo paced the Lady Hornets with 13 points in the girls Class 1A, D2 bi-district victory.

    The low-scoring contest was close throughout with neither team able to muster a large lead.
    Miller Grove edged ahead 15-11 at intermission.
    “We played very tentative for most of the night. Karnack is very athletic and had a big girl who is good. Shelbi Potts had the task of covering her and did a great job.  We need to clean up the offensive end in order to have a chance against Saint Jo on Friday.  I am proud of all these girls for their efforts.  This is the first playoff win for the girls since 1986.  The area game vs Saint Jo is Friday 7:30 p.m. at Van Alstyne,” said Gary Billingsley, Miller Grove head basketball coach.
