Back-To-Back: Southwest Christian tops Second Baptist in TAPPS 5A Championship presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors
After fighting to get through a season like no other and battling through a pandemic, the Fort Worth Southwest Christian Lady Eagles are back-to-back TAPPS 5A State Champions. Last Friday they defeated Houston Second Baptist 54-40 in an extremely physical matchup.
The Lady Eagles finish their season with a 25-1 overall record. Their only loss came in a non-district game against Argyle Liberty Christian where the Lady Warriors topped the Lady Eagles 64-46. Since the loss, they went on an 18-game win streak posting a 9-0 undefeated district record and claiming another state title.
In the state title game, twin senior guards Arieona and Ariele Rosborough scored a combined 36 points helping the Lady Eagles maintain the lead throughout the entirety of the game. Ariele scored two three-pointers in the fourth quarter, ultimately sealing the win for Southwest Christian.
