Thorndale has faced Normangee on other time this season. It was during the Lady Dogs’ tournament in early March, where the Lady Panthers bested Thorndale.

“The have a good all around team. They put the ball in play on offense. They are very similar to us, not any glaring weaknesses at any position,” Betak said. “They beat us 7-3 in our tournament. I feel like we have gotten much better since then. We had only been out of basketball for a little over a week.”

Normangee is the third place team in District 25A, behind champion Bremond and second place North Zulch.

The Lady Dogs were second in 26A behind Thrall and just in front of Holland.
