The OHS Lady Tigers went on a ride to Deer Park on Monday, February 11, to challenge the Valley Christian Panthers in the district playoffs.

It was definitely a close one, but the ladies pulled it off, as they often do in their away games. The Tigers beat the Panthers, 49 to 35, getting them one step further in the tournament.

Grace Nelson was the high scorer of the game with a total of 16 points. She was also recognized after the game for her accomplishments. Since she is only in eighth grade, we can look forward to many more outstanding games from her over her basketball career in Odessa.
