Led by UTEP signee Katia Gallegos the Franklin Cougars defeated the Midland Lee Rebels 52-47 in overtime to win the Bi-District Championship. Franklin is the only 6A girls team still alive as Americas, Montwood and Pebble Hills all failed to advance in their Bi-District games.
Overtime would go to the Cougars however as they outscored Lee 10-5 led by their sensational guard Katia Gallegos. She finished the night with 27 points and did a little bit of everything. She would drive to the basket and finish, get fouled or drop it off to one of her teammates. It was a sensational game all around by Franklin who now moves on to face Arlington Bowie in the Area Round of the UIL State Playoffs.
