Austin High School girls fend off Lake Travis in a hot hoop game

Even though the Austin High women’s basketball team never lost a District 26-6A morning game against a visit to Lake Travis on January 3, the Maroons also never felt comfortable.

And that’s okay with Aubrey Reed, the Maroons’ senior defensive end and point guard who helped Austin High go undefeated in county play with a hard-fought 46-41 win.

“From the start of the game, we knew it was going to be one of the toughest matches,” Reed said. “I mean they (Lake Travis) are a good team. We let them come back to us, but we stuck to our game plan. I believe that in the end we play very well together. We can overcome everything.”

Reed and her teammates had to overcome a furious finish by Mia Galbraith and her Cavalier teammates, who ended the series 7-0 in under a minute to tie at 40-39 with 35 seconds left in the game. Galbraith, an Oklahoma State rookie at quarterback, scored just six points before the fourth period, when he was chased by Jade Kluck and the Maroons defense. But she came to life late, hitting a lane jumper, a three-pointer and a pair of free throws in a 7-0 Cavs spurt.
