BRYAN, Texas -- Round Top Carmine won the Class A State Volleyball Championship this year, but they won't be able to add the Girls' Basketball Title to their accomplishments after losing to Leggett in the Area Round of the playoffs Friday night 55-52 at the Armory at Rudder High School.
RTC was down 30-26 at the half, and cut Leggett's lead to 2 on Brittany Hohlt's inside bucket. She'd have 20 in the game to pace the Cubbettes.
Leggett answered with a 16-1 run to close out the remainder of the 3rd quarter to take a 46-29 lead heading into the 4th quarter.
Round Top tried to rally in the fourth quarter behind the inside game of Brittany and her sister Megan Hohlt who added 17 points, but couldn't get any closer than 3 and lose it 55-52.
The Lady Pirates got 42 points from Brianna Criswell and Tyanna Barlow and will face the winner between Evant and Kennard.
