Fox Sports also noted that thestudent was the first female player to play in a Texas state title game, as well. "I didn't really think about it too much today because I didn't it want it too much in my head and freak out", Strawn told the Star-Telegram after the game. "All I anxious about was the ball getting on the tee and me making the right contact with it".

It was a routine kicking performance for K-Lani Nava on Wednesday as she booted nine extra points for Strawn School in a 78-42 win. I do my job. We rooted her on in basketball forever when she played, and she's been a part of Strawn forever. "She did and she really did a good job", Lee said.
