Back on Track: Richland Lady Royals ballin' in the New Year
In an effort to make it back to playoffs for the first time since being knocked out by DeSoto in the fourth round of the 2018-19 basketball season, the Richland Lady Royals are doing everything they can to succeed. VYPEDFW dives in to what this season has looked like so far and what fans can expect for the rest of the Lady Royals' schedule:
Last season, Richland posted a 10-16 overall record and finished in the fifth place spot in their district. Despite not being able to make a playoff appearance, the Lady Royals were still able to put up 1,041 points against their opponents while posting big victories over the likes of Waco, Cleburne, Justin Northwest, Birdville, Denton, and more!
So far this season, Richland started off a bit rocky posting five-straight losses to very tough teams, but the Lady Royals were able to regroup and turn it around to find the right path towards their success. The team has defeated Abilene, Keller Central, Irving Ranchview, West Mesquite, and more on the path to district play. In district play, Richland has already posted a 3-1 record with wins over Denton Ryan, Denton, and Colleyville Heritage.
The Lady Royals will play their next matchup against school district rival Birdville. Fans can expect the Lady Royals to be prepared to put up a fight. This specific squad has something special when it comes to a fire and desire to win- fans can expect to see a strong push towards the playoffs this season.
