The Wylie Lady Bulldogs are no strangers to the underdog role. They’ve been playing it most of this season.
That was true during District 4-5A play, which saw Wylie rebound from a 13-3 loss at Aledo to win its next seven league games.
And it was true in each of the Lady Bulldogs’ first three playoff series — wins over quality teams from Canyon Randall (18-16), El Paso Eastwood (25-8-1) and Lubbock Coronado (28-11).
So if you think coach Heather Collier’s team will be overwhelmed or intimidated by a Region I-5A semifinal matchup with No. 6 Lewisville The Colony (36-3), you can think again. The Lady Bulldogs have a healthy respect for the Lady Cougars and all they’ve accomplished this year, but they’ve accomplished too much themselves to fear anyone.
