Burkburnett Lady Bulldogs hoops fighting through district play
Last year, the Burkburnett Lady Bulldogs posted an incredible season. Finishing their 2022 campaign as bi-district champions, the Lady Bulldogs have been on the mission to do much of the same this season. VYPE DFW takes a look at the team as they continue to work their way through district play and lay out exactly what fans can expect from the team moving forward.
A Look Back
Last season, the Lady Bulldogs posted a 21-14 overall record (8-2 in district play). Through non-district play, the team defeated the likes of Jacksboro, Bowie, Wichita Falls City View, Sherman and more as they prepared to put up a strong district battle. In district play, the team only posted two losses against tough Kennedale and Graham teams. Despite two losses, the team was able to finish second in their district and make a strong playoff appearance.
After defeating Lampasas 54-47 in the first round of playoffs, Burkburnett fell in a hard-fought 49-43 match against Bridgeport to end their season.
This season, the Lady Bulldogs have been working hard to get back to the playoffs. Their team posted a 7-17 overall record while posting a 3-1 district record. Despite tough losses through non-district play, the Lady Bulldogs were able to pull off victories over Archer city, Boyd, Petrolia, and more. Through district play, the team has picked up the pace and is ready to finish making strong plays on the court in each outing. So far, the team has defeated Wichita Falls Hirschi, Gainesville, and Wichita Falls.
The Lady Bulldogs are looking to get back on track on Wednesday, January 25th in a home game against Wichta Falls Hirschi. Coming off of a disappointing loss to Sanger, fans can expect to see the Lady Bulldogs playing strong throughout the rest of their district play with a great chance of making another playoff appearance.
