Austin City Limits: Winnsboro Leaves For State Tournament

Since 1991 the Winnsboro Lady Raiders headed to Austin 10 times for the state tournament.

Wednesday marked trip number 11.

The Lady Raiders left this Wednesday morning with a big pep rally and community sendoff. Winnsboro has won three state titles and are aiming for number four.

Last season, the girls came up just short in Austin and that is something giving them motivation this time around.

"I feel like we're more prepared and not so much nervous but ready to play," said guard Macy Morton.

"I am very excited!" said Sara Seen. "You don't get a chance like this very often and when you do you just have to take advantage of it and win!"

Winnsboro plays Tuscola Jim Ned in the Class 2A Semifinals, Friday at 8:30 a.m. in Austin.
