Mia Flores

Edcouch-Elsa’s Mia Flores came into her senior year expecting big things. The point guard felt ready for a breakout season after helping the Yellow Jackets finish second in District 32-5A as a junior.

Before district play began, Flores tore her ACL during the McAllen ISD Border Bash tournament on Nov. 18, effectively ending her senior season and with it her high school career.

While her days suiting up for the Yellow Jackets ended prematurely, Flores was able to cement her legacy at Edcouch-Elsa, becoming the player in two years to reach 1,000 career points, joining Madi Treviño, who is now on the Texas Lutheran Bulldogs’ squad.
