The Lady Bulldogs came up short of the State 3A Championship Title against Mt. Vernon 51-47 but they are still champions in the Marlin community.
There’s no question what the Lady Bulldogs did this season was nothing short of outstanding. The Lady Bulldogs have no reason to hang their heads low but have all the reason to hold their heads up high. They are the first team in Marlin High School basketball history to play in a state final game.
The team’s accomplishment gave the community of Marlin a reason to be proud. Community volunteer Michael Magouirk rallied the community together at the Falls County Courthouse to give the team a warm welcome home celebration after an emotional loss.
The team was escorted into town by several law enforcement agencies that included Marlin PD, Falls County Sheriff’s Department, Constable Marion Humphrey, Texas DPS, Texas Game Warden and the Marlin Fire Department.
