HOUSTON — The Lamar Consolidated Lady Mustangs have proven throughout the 2020-2021 season, they were no fluke. Head coach James Frazier had the Lady Mustangs heading the right direction in Lamar's first trip back to the playoffs in nearly 10 years.
But every story has an ending, and for 251 schools in Class 5A that means a season-ending loss.
Lamar Consolidated started strong against the She-wolves of Beaumont United, trailing 23-17 after one quarter but by the end the Lady Mustangs shots weren't falling in 69-41 loss.
"We had a great ride this season and so proud of how hard our Lady Mustangs fought," Frazier said.
The Lady Mustangs’ season ended with a 19-4 record overall with a loss at C.E. King’s old gym in Houston.
Senior Hannah Humphrey led the way for the Lamar with 18 points.
The size of seniors Taylor Jarrels and Desiree Rogers kept Lamar in the game on the defensive end with blocks and rebounds while the duo kept offensive possessions alive with rebounds.
But the active defense and speed had the Lady Mustangs off balance when shooting the basketball.
The Lady Mustangs finish the year with a 19-4 record overall, finishing as the No. 2 seed out of District 24-5A.
Jarrels, Tia Murray, Rogers and Humphrey were seniors on the Lady Mustangs' roster.
