TC Lady Steers Ready For Trip To Nationals

One East Texas team is headed to their own big dance. The NAIA Division One National Tournament.

The Texas College Lady Steers are all set to play.

TC battled their way through the Red River Athletic Conference tournament as the seventh seed, to clinch a spot in the tournament. The team will leave early Tuesday morning for their matchup in Jackson, Tennessee.

For the Lady Steers it's new ground and another chance to prove the critics wrong.

"It's just been a real surprise that we were able to get this far, because were predicted to finish in last place," said Lady Steers Head Coach Debra Alexander. "So when we finished seventh, that was definitely a plus for us. The girls just came and stepped up and played with a lot of heart."

"This my first time ever," said Lyndzay Longacre about the trip to nationals. "To even get to the conference tournament, it was my first time. So, it hasn't hit me yet. When we get there it will hit me."

Texas College will play the country's number one team, Vanguard College of California. The game is Wednesday, March 15, at 1:45 p.m. at the Oman Arena in Jackson, Tennessee.
