MARBLE FALLS — The Faith Academy of Marble Falls girls basketball team earned victory No. 75 in their district winning streak and received another gift Feb. 1.

By beating Austin Hill Country 54-20 and having Temple Holy Trinity defeat Waco Texas Christian on the same night, the Lady Flames qualified for the playoffs for the eighth consecutive season.

And now Faith looks to add the District 4-2A crown in the next few days.

“We can win the district championship with a win this week over either Waco school,” Lady Flames head coach Jerry English said. “That is not what we want. We want to win our seventh straight undefeated district championship.”

Against Hill Country, the Lady Flames’ 7-4 lead quickly went to 18-6 by the end of the first quarter. By the half, Faith led 28-10.
