Lady Kangaroos overcome challenges, stay perfect in district

Despite being unable to practice over the weekend because of icy weather, followed by a fire water line break at Weatherford High School, the Lady Kangaroos remained undefeated in District 3-6A with a 45-35 victory at Abilene Tuesday.

"I was there when it started. It leaked for over an hour," said Lady Roos coach Darryn Shearmire, who used 30 towels to block the doorways to the gymnasium to prevent the flooding from reaching.
