 Mansfield Summit defeated Houston Nimitz 52-43 in the UIL Girls Class 5A State Final at the Frank Erwin Center Saturday night. Nimitz’s star player Brittney Griner, a 6’8″ senior center who committed to pay for Baylor next year, embraces Chrishauna Parker after they received their runner-up medals.


 Summit players dance on the court after their victory in the last game of the tournament and guess where they wanted to celebrate, Fudruckers. Should be a good time for all. 


 Nimitz’s Brittney Griner blocks the shot attempt of Summit’s Amy Moody during first quarter action.


 Nimitz’s Brittney Griner throws down a windmill dunk during pre-game warmups much to the delight of the fans. As soon as the referees showed up it turned to boos because players cannot dunk during warmups when the officials are on the court.
