Highland Park was never seriously challenged during its Class 5A Region II playoff opener on Tuesday, just like almost every other entry in its ongoing 14-game winning streak.
The Scots opened up a 30-point lead prior to halftime and cruised to a 68-42 victory over Seagoville in a bi-district matchup at Ellis Davis Field House.
Reilly Seebold scored 17 points and Worthey Wiles added 15 to lead a balanced effort for HP, which racked up 48 points in the first half. Finn Corwin contributed 10 points and Prince Dorbah had eight.
The Scots (23-9) advance to meet Lovejoy in the area round at 7 p.m. Friday at Lewisville. The Leopards (23-8) slipped past Frisco 34-33 in their first-round game.
During Tuesday’s game, David Robinson tallied 15 points to pace the overmatched Dragons (11-20), who finished in fourth place in District 12-5A during the regular season.
Meanwhile, the Scots haven’t lost since December, with most of their games in that span being decided by double-digit margins.
