KYLE – Tivy’s girls basketball team used a big fourth quarter rally to overcome San Marcos 31-30 in the championship game of the Hays CISD Basketball Classic on Saturday.

The Lady Antlers trailed Class 6A San Marcos throughout the first three periods by as much as 12 points before defanging the Rattlers 14-3 in the final eight minutes of action and move to 11-2 for the year.

Tournament MVP Audrey Robertson scored eight of her team high 12 points in the final frame in which Tivy’s defense limited San Marcos to only one field goal and three free throw attempts, of which the Rattlers made one.

Presleigh Way and Ashlee Zirkel each scored six points, Julia Becker had three, and Cassidy Harmon and Liz Twiss were in for two points each. Way and Julia Becker were named to the all-tournament team.
