The Lady Mustangs travelled to Waco to play the Lady of the Hills Hawks in the TAPPS State Championship on February 23. With school cancelled, many students made the two hours drive to cheer on the soccer team. This was the first year any MCA soccer team has made it to state. The game ended in a tough loss and a score of 0-5 for the Mustangs. With many starters hurt, it made the match against the Hawks a difficult one. Junior captain,
