Area girls hoop playoffs set
By L. Scott Hainline
Friendswood finished third and Manvel was fourth in District 24-4A, and the coaches of the playoff-bound teams feel good about where they are.
We're playing the way we need to play heading into the playoffs," Friendswood coach Kirby Killingsworth said. Our district really gets us ready for the postseason because night in and night out in 24-4A, teams get a good feel for what the playoffs will be like."
Friendswood dropped a hard-fought 51-45 decision to 24-4A champion La Marque, and Manvel fell to second-place Angleton 58-51 in district finales last week.
It's been a tough stretch for us because of injuries, but we've had several players step up and play well," Manvel coach Fleceia Comeaux said. We lost two key players Ali Sluismans (knee) and Jasmine Allen (broken foot) but we still have a good feeling about advancing into the bracket."
