The Summit girls basketball team can give itself an early cushion in the district standings this week as it looks to build on its 2-0 record.

The Lady Jaguars are 8-4 on the season but started district play last week with wins over Legacy and Lancaster.

This week, they were to take on Waxahachie on Tuesday before an early showdown with the only other unbeaten district foe, Seguin, on Friday.

The Lady Jaguars will look to contain Laurynn McGowen and Alarie Mayz of Seguin. Mayz scored 28 in the Lady Cougars’ win over Red Oak last week.

In the win over Lancaster, Stylz Sanders led the Lady Jags with 10 points in the 46-38 win.

In the other win, also a 46-point output by Summit over Legacy’s 31, Keanna Kelly went wild, scoring over half the points for Summit, pouring in 25.

•  Legacy, after the loss to Summit, boosted its District 15-4A mark to 1-1 after picking up a 49-35 win over Lake Ridge. Bethany Ross scored a dozen for the Lady Broncos and Amelia Jackson had 11. This week, Legacy was to host Lancaster and then travel to Red Oak on Friday.

•  In the loss to Legacy, Lake Ridge’s Kennedy Burks and Kylie Collins each had 11 points.

Although the Lady Eagles are 0-2, 3-8 overall, they were hoping to even their record this week. They traveled to Red Oak Tuesday, a 1-1 team, and then will host Ennis on Friday. Ennis currently stands with an identical 0-2 district mark and 2-4 overall.

•  In District 7-5A, Timberview has a 1-1 record after beating Midlothian, 58-41, but losing to Duncanville, 48-40. This week, the Lady Wolves were at Grand Prairie and will then host Mansfield on Friday.

Dayo Olabode scored 19 against Midlothian and JaLea Bennett added 16.

Timberview trailed Duncanville just 19-17 and stayed within 2 of the Pantherettes into the fourth quarter before losing by the final 8-point spread. Duncanville remains one of the top teams in the area and are undefeated at 10-0.

•  Mansfield remains winless thus far this season and dropped decisions to Cedar Hill and DeSoto in their first district games of the season. This week, in addition to Timberview on Friday, they were to have played South Grand Prairie at home, with final results available at dfwvarsity.com.

In the 61-57 loss to DeSoto, Chennedy Carter had a 27-point game for the Lady Tigers. Larin Owens was also in double figures for Mansfield with 17 points.
