Entering the final week of the regular season, the Farmersville girls basketball team still had everything to play for going into the postseason.
Tied with Caddo Mills for the second seed in the district, the Lady Farmers had the opportunity to earn a home playoff game. After the Lady Farmers have coped with an up-and-down season, including losing most of the pre-season due to volleyball, being able to earn a top-two seed would show strong signs of improvement for Farmersville going forward.
Farmersville opened the week on the road, traveling to Terrell to face a good Lady Tigers team Tuesday, Feb. 2. Similar to the Lady Farmers, Terrell was also in the hunt for a home playoff spot, sitting one game behind Caddo Mills and Farmersville in fourth place with a 6-4 district record. In a competitive game among two similar teams, Terrell got revenge for its loss to Farmersville earlier in the season, dominating the Lady Farmers en route to a 77-40 victory.
