AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Duncanville remains a perfect team. In fact, make that a perfect state champion.
The Pantherettes won their second straight Texas Class 5A state championship Saturday night with 59-36 rout of Cibolo Steele.
Kiara Perry provided the early spark in Duncanville’s 70th consecutive victory, scoring 13 points and grabbing 10 rebounds in the first half as the Pantherettes (42-0) built a 20-point lead by the second quarter.
Duncanville’s third state title in 10 years was yet another milestone for one of the state’s most dominant programs. Duncanville became the first repeat 5A champion since Mansfield won four in a row from 1999-2002.
Perry finished with 20 points and13 rebounds. Ariel Atkins scored 13 for Duncanville.
McKenzie Calvert scored 19 to lead Cibolo Steele (33-6) points.
