BURLESON and MIDLOTHIAN – The Burleson Lady Elks varsity basketball team’s playoff-fate will be determined by a game between the Mansfield Summit Lady Jaguars and Cleburne Lady Yellow Jackets Tuesday in Mansfield.
If fifth-place Summit (8-7 in district, 12-21 overall) beats Cleburne Tuesday, they’ll tie the fourth-place Lady Elks (9-7, 17-13) and get to play them in a playoff-tiebreaker game. If Cleburne beats Summit, the Lady Elks secure fourth-place and clinch the playoffs.
