The Eagle Pass High School Lady Eagles varsity girls basketball team under the direction of head coach Ruben Besa and assistant coaches Arturo Gonzalez, Norman Carreon and Rachel Menchaca ventured to Laredo Texas on Tuesday, November 7, 2017 to tipoff their 2017-2018 basketball hard court campaign with a 7:30 PM non-district hoops matchup against the Laredo St. Augustine Lady Knights.

The visiting Lady Eagles aggressive offensive and defensibe scheme and overall quickness proved to be too much for the home standing Lady Knights to handle.  The Lady Eagles got scoring production of Bisa Padilla, Paola Hernandez and McKayla Hernandez to build an early sizeable lead which they would not relinquish the rest of game.  Defensively two-sport standout Brooke Diaz was simply unstoppable on both ends of the court as she registered a team and game high 20 rebounds and also recorded a team and game high 5 blocked shots to help lead the Lady Eagles to a convincing 50 to 29 victory over the Lady Knights.
