Following wins over Tidewater District foes King William and King and Queen during the past week, the Mathews High School varsity girls’ basketball team is preparing for post-season play.

The MHS girls, who had a 6-1 district record going into Wednesday night’s season-ending contest against King and Queen, will be the top-seeded team with a win. Results from that game were not available at press time.

The Lady Devils defeated King William on the road last Thursday, 32-21. Mathews had early trouble putting the ball in the basket, trailing the hosts, 7-6, after one quarter, but recovered to take a 18-16 lead into the halftime break. King William was very inconsistent offensively in the second half and Mathews took advantage to pull away with an 11-point final margin.
