ORANGE — The West Orange-Stark Lady Mustangs picked a great night to capture their first District 21-3A win of the season by defeating the Silsbee Lady Tigers 47-46 at Mustang Gym Tuesday night.

Lady Mustang head coach Bonnie Perry, who was a All-State player for WO-S in the mid-1980s and who was also a standout player at Baylor, had her jersey retired before the game Tuesday.
