Young Diboll team wins 3rd consecutive District Title: 'We're use to winning'

DIBOLL, TX (KTRE) - Winning for the Diboll girls basketball team is nothing new; in fact it's expected.

"It's a good feeling, but we are also use to winning district," said Lexxus Hamilton, senior of the basketball team.

Hamilton has played for the team all 3 consecutive years Diboll has won district, and all 3 years they have gone undefeated in district play.

The Ladyjack team consists of primarily sophomores, and being 1 of 2 seniors on the team, leading scorer Hamilton says she tries to lead by example.

"I just go hard. When I go hard they go hard. When I slack off, they slack off. The tempo kind of depends on me and what I do," said Hamilton.

That tempo has had a ripple effect for the team and especially for the only freshmen on varsity, Mia Williams, who has been averaging 12.6 points a game.

"They push my harder and since I'm a freshmen they always help me a lot," said Williams.

Being one of the youngest teams in the district doesn't mean anything to the Ladyjacks. They know they have to do one thing.

"We just got to push harder than everybody else," said Williams.

They have made the first round of playoffs and that game will be Monday against Palestine. The game starts at 6:30 in Tenaha.
