CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — High school girls basketball in UIL District 29-5A crowned their champion in the zone crossover playoffs on Tuesday. Veterans Memorial defeated Victoria East 50-36. Mia De La Pena led the floor with 17 points.

"Compared to last year we had a lot of good seniors," Mia De La Pena, Veterans Memorial junior point guard, said. "We knew what we had. We needed to get people to step up and they did, so we know all the hard work paid off. Our coaching staff they're great. You know, they helped us win a lot of games and we all work together. We have good team chemistry I would say."
