Lady Warrior Basketball- Last Tuesday, the Lady Warriors played host to the Lady Panthers of Anahuac in a district matchup that came down to the last shot.

Warren was able to build a 28-15 halftime lead with buckets from Laikyn Bell and Erin Foster.

In the fourth, Brenna Buckner hit a crucial jumper to put the Lady Warriors up 42-35. The Lady Panthers then answered with back-to-back 3-point shots to come within one at 42-41 with 90 seconds remaining on the clock. With the lead, the Lady Warriors passed the ball around to kill the clock, forcing Anahuac to foul Clymer. Clymer made one out of two shots to put Warren up 43-41.
The Lady Panthers inbounded the ball on Warren's side of the court with 1.6 seconds left, but could only find the side of the rim, giving Warren the win. Bell ended the night with 10 points and Foster with four. On Friday, the Lady Warriors traveled to Kountze to take on the Lionettes.
