Gabi Fields, who wore the #15 jersey of the Brownfield Lady Cubs Basketball Team with honor and pride, earned another award from this past championship season. The Lady Cubs took the Class 3A Girls Basketball Season by storm winning the 2020-2021 Class 3A Girls Basketball State Title, and everyone knows it was not an easy task.
After the 2019-2020 season where the Lady Cubs reached the Regional Quarterfinals and and got a black eye, from at that time, district foe Idalou. After a district re-alignment by UIL in February 2020, the Lady Cubs set out to prove that they belong in the state title hunt. That they did, and did it in a fashion that will be talked about for a very long time.
The Lady Cubs earned a District Title, went on to win Bi-District 82-19 over Presidio, Area Champs over #6 Idalou 53-51, Regional Quarterfinal Champions over Childress 57-55 (which should’ve been in the top 25), Regional Semifinal winners over #16 Peaster 67-58, Region I-3A Champions over then #1 Shallowater 50-45, State Semifinal Champions over #4 Ponder and the winning the State Title over #2 Fairfield 68-64. With this impressive win, one Lady Cub stood out.
Gabbis Fields has earned another award to add to what she received thus far:
- District 3-3A MVP
- Texas Associaltion of Basketball Coaches (TABC) Region I-3A All-Region
- Lone Star Varsity Player of the Year
- TABC 3A All-State

- TGCA 1A, 2A, & 3A All-Star Team Selection

And now to add to her list of earned awards is the TABC Class 3A Player of the Year. To put this perspective there are 235 UIL 3A teams in girls basketball in Texas with an average of 10 athletes a team. So according to this data, Gabi is best out of about 2300 plus girls.
Gabi had this to say, “It is an honor, I’m just grateful that God had put me in a really good position to be surrounded by players and coaches that love the game as much as I do!”
Congratulation Gabi for your award!
