Lots to cheer about


Fans of the Granbury Lady Pirates had plenty to be excited about Tuesday night as the team defeated rival Cleburne 54-33 in the Class 4A bidistrict basketball game at Boswell High School. The Lady Pirates (21-13) won for the 16th time in their past 20 games following a slow start to the season and moved on to the area round last night, facing Wichita Falls Rider (30-3). Rider is ranked sixth in the state by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches and fifth by the Texas Girls Coaches Association.
