Martin’s Mill girls headed to state for fourth straight year

It's become an annual trip for the KLTV 7 sports department.

The first week of march, we head to Martin's Mill. We made the trip for the fourth year in a row because for that fourth year, the Lady Mustangs are in the state tournament.

The Martin's Mill ladies won state in 2006 and 2008. They made it to the semifinals in 2007. They were last ranked 8th in the state.

For the seniors, a team has gone to Austin each year of their high school career.

'For anyone to say they have gone to state at all, I think that's an accomplishment right there," senior Cara Chaney said. "But to say you've gone all years of your high school career, I don't know how to describe it."

"It's exciting," coach Doug Barncastle said. "You know it's always nice to go once, let alone four times. I think it's kind of a special year this year because I think there were alot of people out there that didn't really we'd be able to go back."

Martin's Mill will take on Roscoe, Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m in the Class A Division 1 semifinals. That game at the Erwin Center in Austin.

There will be a community wide sendoff for the team beginning Wednesday morning at 9:40 a.m at the O'Neal Weaver Gymnasium.
