The Gunter Lady Tigers made it to the state basketball tournament for the third year in a row in 1997.
Gunter had become a state powerhouse in the mid-90's. They were led by the Sutton twins, Jill and Amy. Both players came up big throughout their careers with the Lady Tigers. Amy Sutton would have 15 points in the semifinal. Jill Sutton would score 14 points.
This Gunter team eventually lost out to the eventual state champ in Poth, but not before a 35-2 season and building a basketball legacy at Gunter. The Lady Tigers had made it to the state finals in 1996.
Other key players on this Gunter team included Jill Cohagan, Dayna Ford, Amy Kemp and Mindi Streetman.
The Sutton twins went on to have tremendous basketball careers at TCU.
