Lady Mustangs celebrate winning nine state championships in a row
This week, the Andrews High School Lady Mustangs made history by setting a Texas record by taking home their ninth UIL state championship in row and they’re making sure everyone knows about it.
The team was escorted through town with medals around their necks and cheering friends and family waiting to celebrate the now legendary win.
And they deserved every second of it.
To take home their record setting win at state, the Lady Mustangs beat out 12 other teams and it wasn’t even close as the second-best team was 29 strokes short of catching up.
“That’s just the expectation in Andrews,” Williamson said.
I asked players what’s made the Lady Mustangs so dominant year after year and they all say it’s because the lady mustangs put in far more time and effort than any other golf team in the state.
“That’s just what you have to do,” Varsity Player Skyler Strube said. “We just go out there and really have fun. We sacrifice our weekends for golf and it’s just been a long ride and it’s just been really fun.”
It’s a bittersweet moment for the seniors who have spent countless hours training side by side now ready to hang up their lady mustang uniforms and finally part ways.
“Like every moment of it was so enjoyable and I’ll never forget it,” Varsity Player Paige Jennings said.
But, of course, while this may be the end of the cart path for seniors, Coach Williamson likes the sound of ten state champions.
“We’ll take another crop, we’ll start in August and here we go again,” he said. “See if we can defend this thing and go.”
