The Highland Park girls started the District 7-6A basketball schedule at perennial playoff contender Richardson Friday with a 59-37 victory over the Lady Eagles.
It was the first of four consecutive road games to begin the league slate for the Lady Scots (10-5), who hadn’t played at home since a Nov. 11 loss to Coppell. In all, HP will play at least 19 contests in visiting gyms or at neutral sites between that game and a Jan. 6 home matchup with Irving.
Most recently, they earned two lopsided wins at the Northeast Lions Club tournament on Dec. 1-3 in Haltom City.
HP opened with a 62-39 victory over Birdville before falling to Fort Worth Brewer 44-30 in the semifinals. The Lady Scots bounced back by crushing Haltom 75-33 for third place.
