The Runnin' Lady Panthers pose with a banner after taking the area championship round over Beeville-Jones on Feb. 19, 2021 at Jourdanton High School. 

Navarro’s only senior Haleigh Ortiz delivered when her team needed it the most.

With seven seconds on the clock, The Runnin’ Lady Panthers had the ball near the scorer’s table off a Navarro timeout. With a chance to win it or force the 48-48 game with Beeville-Jones into overtime, Tatum Harborth took the inbound pass down the lane towards the basket, saw an open Ortiz and gave her the chance to put up the two-point game winner. Ortiz sank the ball and the sound of the final buzzer was lost in the roar of the Navarro crowd from Jourdanton on Friday night.
