On Feb. 24, the girls basketball team took on Kerrville Tivy in the Region IV-5A final at the Northside Sports Gym, but fell to the Antlers, 58-40.

The Hornets were coming off a 51-45 win the previous day against Marble Falls in the region semifinals.

It was a slow start to the game as Flour Bluff only made one field goal in the first quarter. Tivy, on the other hand, was able to find the bottom of the net on enough of its shots to carry a six-point lead into the second quarter.

The Hornets found themselves behind 26-17 at halftime. Throughout the second half, the team still struggled to find its niche offensively.

Heading into the fourth quarter, Tivy held a 40-30 lead and didn’t look back. The Antlers outscored the Hornets in every quarter to get the win.

When any type of season ends, the focus shifts to a certain group: the seniors. Some members of the team have played their last in the maroon and white. One of those seniors is guard Mia Schlemme. She reflected on her four years with the team.

“The experience will never be forgotten. Being part of the team was what made my high school years fun,” Schlemme said.

Michael Jordan inspired her to play the game of basketball, and she was always motivated to  improve her game, she said.

“I was inspired by his class and composure he had on the court,” she said. “I always thought about working to get my teammates better.”

Although the team is losing some of its key seniors, it has players who can learn from this year’s experience and strive to go even farther next season.
