For the Landrum Cardinals, the season didn’t start off well.
Part of it was a tough schedule; part of it was a young team trying to make its way. The Lady Cardinals showed flashes early on though, beating 4A Boiling Springs in the Bojangles Holiday Bash.
After that win LHS Head Coach Deon Brice knew his team had it in them.
He was right.
A team that was picked to finish second in its region went on a dramatic run to close out the season, winning a region championship and then advancing to the third round of the state playoffs.
That run ended too soon for Brice, however. The Lady Cardinals lost in the third round on Monday night, ending their magical season.
