This segment is dedicated to the D-1 Ambassadors Varsity girls who suited up with their school teams last night.
Marble Falls 56 Lake Travis 52
I had a chance to be in attendance for this match up between Marble Falls and Lake Travis. Marble Falls jumped out to an early double digit lead on the Cavs behind the play of Sophomore Kiara Etheridge. The lady Mustangs looked good as they executed very well over the course of the game.
2014 G 5’8 Sarah Stripling of Marble Falls played very well. The true freshman has excellent ball handling skills with nice range on her shot. She is ranked #15 in the State in scoring for the class of 2014. Sarah contributed 5 points in the win, but fouled out with lots of time left in the game. Stripling is truly developing her self into a nice prospect in the class of 2014. Sarah suited up with the D-1 Ambassadors Marble Falls group last summer and we look forward to having her return.
2013 F 6’0 Kiara Etheridge is a woman playing among girls. Etheridge notched 25 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the win. She is also ranked #6 in the State by Max Preps in rebounds per game (12.6) for her class (2013). Kiara suits up with our D-1 Ambassadors Flagship team over the spring and summer months.

2011 G 5’5 Haylea Jackson of Hutto continues to do damage. Haylea is averaging right at 16 per game and gave Manor 22 last night. Jackson is a very quick combo guard with no fear at attacking the rim.She has a excellent skill set and definitely would do great things at the next level. Coaches here we have an unsigned senior who’s ready to play. Haylea suits up with the D-1 Ambassadors Flagship Team. Hutto lost 72-67
2011 W 5’11 Kathryn Tolbert of Hendrickson was a nightmare for Elgin last night. Kathryn dropped 27 points and grabbed 19 rebounds in the win. Kathryn is getting several looks at this time, but still is an unsigned senior. If you are looking for a player to come in and work hard Kathryn is your player. With her size and ability to handle & shoot the ball she will definitely be an asset at the next level. Kathryn suits up with D-1 Ambassadors Flagship
