The return to District 15-5A play after a two-week break didn’t change the fortunes of Highland Park on Tuesday, as the Lady Scots suffered a 57-27 road loss to Mesquite Poteet.
HP trailed 33-11 at halftime and never recovered. Taylor Loewe and Ella Patterson paced the Lady Scots (8-13, 2-2) with six points apiece.
It was the fourth straight defeat for HP, which dropped all three of its games at the Sandra Meadows Classic tournament last week in Duncanville. The Lady Scots lost to DeSoto, Amarillo Palo Duro, and Fort Bend Ridge Point, with Ashley Turner scoring 22 points in the tournament finale.
HP will continue the district schedule on Friday with a home game against Forney, then will travel to Royse City on Jan. 9.
