The Wildcats used a strong second half that saw Clear Creek outscore the Lady Gators, 26-10, to pick up a bounce-back win in the district finale on Tuesday night.

Clear Creek erased the seven-point deficit winning the third quarter 16-6.

Back in the playoffs for the second consecutive season, Clear Creek (8-6 in District 24-6A, No. 3 seed) will tangle with Alief Elsik (9-3 in District 23-6A, No. 2 seed) in the bi-district round of the playoffs next week. Game information will be determined later.
Clear Springs 72, Clear Brook 35
For the third consecutive season, the Clear Springs girls basketball team completed a perfect district record as the Chargers rolled passed Clear Brook on Tuesday night to complete District 24-6A play.
Leading 17-6 after the first quarter, Clear Springs took full control by scoring a quarter-high 25 points in the second quarter for a comfortable 42-19 halftime lead.
Dymond Gladney led the Chargers with a game-high 16 points. Taylor Singleton tallied 12 points, and McKenna Worrell chipped in with 10 points for Clear Springs.

The 14-0 outright District 24-6A champion Clear Springs will have to wait a few days to find out who it will be playing in the first round, as the Chargers will either play George Ranch or Alief Taylor.
Both the Lady Longhorns and the Lady Lions finished tied for fourth place in District 23-6A with a record of 5-7 and split in their previous meetings (George Ranch won the first game, 49-46, in overtime, and Taylor won the second, 58-51). That results in the teams having to play a play-in game later this week to determine who Clear Springs will play in bi-district.

Bebe Galloway was Ball High’s leading scorer with 18 points, while Nina Kovach was not far behind with 14 points.
