First place China Spring ready for a battle on Friday

CHINA SPRING, Texas The China Spring girls are in first place in their district, but they are still thinking about Friday's game as a chance for redemption.

The Lady Cougars have been really good this season and especially in district play. They face a tough road test Friday, and it's against a team that ended their district title hopes a season ago.

The Lady Cougars visit Lorena on Friday night and they know winning on the road against the Lady Leopards is never easy. It's a lesson they learned last year as they were chasing a district title.

The China Spring girls are a favorite to win this time around against a younger Lorena team, but that doesn't mean they aren't focused. After last year, they are hoping for some redemption.
