The Cisco girls basketball team has a reputation of getting off to a great start, and this year is no different.

With a record of 17-2 and now ranked 12th in the state for Class 3A by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches, the team's discipline and consistency is paying off.

Their play stems from a saying carried down from the principal of Cisco High School to the students, teachers, and coaches.

"His motto is 'We are the Best' and that's what we try to be in everything, football, basketball, grades, academics what ever we can we strive to be the best," Cisco head coach Brent Kilpatrick said." They work hard in everything they do and it shows."

The team isn't just focused on their success on the court, they have aspirations to succeed in their careers as well.

"I want to major in biology in college," said senior Leigh Anne Montell, who is on track to be her class' salutatorian in the spring. "I want to be a physical therapist, I was thinking more of athletes'-type recovery after surgeries. That'd be pretty neat."

"I like math, so I like to do more marketing number stuff like that," senior Lauren Underwood said. "Math there's always going to be an answer, where as in English it's opinionated so I like to have a for-sure answer. I think I want to go get my masters in business and then go onto marketing. Go work for some sports team."

No matter the arena, the Lady Loboes are always looking to dominate.

Cisco plays at home against the Early Lady Longhorns on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.
