A look at the most dominant women's basketball programs the Dallas area has ever produced.
Championships: 8 (1976, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1997, 2003, 2012, 2013)
Star recruits: Cinietra Henderson (Texas), Cobi Kennedy (Texas), Tamika Catchings (Tennessee), Tiffany Jackson (Texas), Empress Davenport (Texas), Kiara Perry (SMU) Ariel Atkins (Texas).
Notable: Duncanville won three championships in a row from 1988-1990 and can accomplish that feat again this weekend. Coach Sandra Meadows brought the school four championships, Cathy Self-Morgan has won three, and Sara Hackerott won in 1997 on the Tamika Catchings-led undefeated squad.
Fort Worth Dunbar
Championships: 2 (2005, 2007)
Star recruits: Brooklyn Pope (Baylor), Jerin Smith (Penn).
Notable: Pope was a McDonald's All-American who helped lead Baylor to the 2012 national championship.
Championships: 1 (2011)
Star recruits: Alexis Jones (Duke), Odyssey Sims (Baylor)
Notable: Both Jones and Sims were named SportsDay's newcomer of the year and, later, player of the year. Sims graduated before MacArthur's 2011 state championship, but she helped the program to a regional semifinal in 2009 and a regional final in 2010.
Championships: 3 (1999, 2004, 2008)
Star recruits: Andrea Riley (Oklahoma State), Dominic Seals (Texas Tech), Kimetria Hayden (Baylor), Chynna Brown (Texas Tech).
Notable: Defense defined Lincoln's greatest basketball teams. "Our motto was if we could guard you, we could beat you," former Lincoln coach Michael Ensley said. "That's what we believed in, and it gave us all the confidence we needed."
Championships: 4 (1999, 2000, 2001, 2002)
Star recruits: Erin Grant (Texas Tech), Kaira White (Texas), Brie Madden (Kansas State).
Notable: Mansfield ended Duncanville's 201-game district winning streak in 1999. It became the first - and remains the only - 5A school to win four consecutive championships.
Championships: 2 (2009, 2012)
Star recruits: Amy Moody (Oral Roberts), Starr Crawford (TCU), Taylor Hooker (Tulsa), Ashley Eli (North Carolina State).
Notable: Without a player taller than 6-2, Summit downed Houston Nimitz and 6-8 star Brittney Griner in the 2009 title game. Griner scored 44 points and dunked in the semifinals, but she was held to 22 points in the championship.
Championships: 1 (2007)
Star recruits: Haley Day (SMU), Kiara Slaton (Tulane)
Notable: Rockwall reached the state finals in 2006, and falling just short of a title was its primary motivation during its championship season. "The goal wasn't to be undefeated," former Rockwall coach Jill McDill said of the 40-0 title season. "It was just to win." Both Rockwall and Cy-Fair were 39-0 when they met in the championship.
South Oak Cliff
Championships: 4 (1977, 1978, 1980, 1985)
Star recruits: Vickie Green (Oklahoma), Barbara Brown (Stephen F. Austin), Jackie Valentine (Baylor), Pam Green (Missouri), Debra Rodman (Louisiana Tech), Kim Rodman (Stephen F. Austin), Ramona Dozier (LSU), Fran Harris (South Oak Cliff).
