The Martins Mill program entered the Regional Tournament last week having already reached the UIL State Tournament in 1987, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016.
The Martins Mill Lady Mustangs added yet another chapter to what has been a staggering run of consistency and excellence over the past 12 years, booking another trip to the UIL Basketball State Tournament by breezing past a pair of state-ranked teams in the Regional Semifinals and Finals last weekend.
The last two steps to add 2017 as a State Tournament year were crossed Feb. 24-25 with the Lady Mustangs knocking off Windthorst and Era in consecutive games.
Windthorst provided little resistance to the Lady Mustangs, falling behind early and never gaining ground in a 68-36 Martins Mill win. The Lady Mustangs dominated first quarter play, jumping all over the 7th ranked Lady Trojans to take an 18-8 lead.
