    Champs clamped: Plano grinds down Keller, books 2nd-ever trip to state

    Matt Welch mwelch@starlocalmedia.com

    DENTON – All postseason long, the Plano Senior softball team has ridden a torrent of high-octane offense – raking a staggering 12 home runs through the first four rounds of the playoffs.

    Yet through all the heavy hitting, head coach Molly Pipak remained confident in her club’s ability to adjust from the plate if the long ball wasn’t working.

    She saw her Lady Wildcats carry out just that on Friday, and earn just the program’s second-ever trip to the state tournament as a result after eliminating two-time reigning Class 6A state champion Keller, 2-1, at Denton Ryan’s Tina Minke Field.

  • Championship Cats: Plano Senior girls capture first state championship

    Wildcats clutch down the stretch to earn crown

    SAN ANTONIO—Plano Senior’s determination would not be denied.

    On the cusp of history, the Lady Wildcats trailed Converse Judson by as many as 10 in the second half, but their play, and their confidence, never wavered.

    Plano made clutch play after clutch play down the stretch to claw its way back into it.

    After a series of big plays by several different players, Plano had Lolo Davenport at the free throw line with 6.3 seconds left and a two-point lead. Davenport made the first and when the second slipped off the rim, Jordyn Merritt was there for the putback to seal a 62-58 victory and set off a raucous celebration to cap the Class 6A championship game at the Alamodome.

  • 2018 SportsDayHS girls basketball Player of the Year: Plano forward Jordyn Merritt

    Jordyn Merritt-Plano, So., F, 6-2

    The biggest basket of Jordyn Merritt's career -- and in the history of Plano girls basketball -- is still a blur.

    "I don't even remember that happening. It all happened so quickly," the Plano sophomore forward said. "I didn't know that time was literally almost out. I just got the rebound."

    With Plano leading by two with 6.3 seconds remaining in the Class 6A state championship game, Lolo Davenport missed the second of two free throws. But Merritt grabbed the offensive rebound and scored on a layup to clinch Plano's 62-58 victory over Converse Judson. It gave Plano its first state title in girls basketball.

    "Being the first team from Plano Senior, it was amazing," Merritt said. "To bring the trophy back home for all of Plano, our school, everybody in the community, felt great."

    How did Plano celebrate?

    "As a team, we went back to the hotel and we jumped in the pool in our uniforms," Merritt said.

    Merritt finished with a team-high 15 points in the state final after scoring 16 in a state semifinal victory against Cypress Creek. She missed five weeks because of a concussion and ankle injury but averaged 13 points and 7.4 rebounds in the regular season. She averaged 15.3 points and 7.3 rebounds in the playoffs and was an all-state selection by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches.
