All of our teams will be participating in the THSSBC State Basketball Tournament in Round Rock February 6-8. All of our boys teams, with the exception of boys Varsity I, will conclude their seasons with state. Our boys Varsity I team will proceed on to defend their Regional title from last year and Bronze Ball championship at Nationals.
Girls Basketball has had a great season but not without its hardships!
Commissioner Maley Young had a medical emergency at the beginning of last month but is now well on her way to mending. She wanted everyone to know how much “our family appreciates the encouragement and prayers that you all have sacrificially given as well stepping up and filling roles! Thank you so very much. The Lord has sustained and healed and His Loving Kindness never ends! He is Eternal, Immortal, Invisible! The One True God!!! To Him be Glory and Honor and Praise forever!”
Both High School girls teams are playing well in the second half of the season and are looking forward to a strong postseason.
The 18u and 16u teams came out to win at Space City Jam last month! 18u won both their early games, played in the semi finals but lost in the championship game to Central Texas by 3 points! 16u also won their early games and headed to the finals where they won it all!
December was a busy month for our basketball teams. We started the month with a lot of great play by several teams in the FEAST Invitational Tournament on December 6 and 7. Our boy’s Varsity I team won the Varsity boys division defeating every opponent by 30+ points. The boy’s Varsity II / JV1 team went 2 and 2 in the varsity division, acquitting themselves quite well. Our JV2 team won the 16U boys division. Our 14U boys A team placed 2nd in their bracket.
On the Girl’s side, the Varsity girls placed 2nd, and the JV girls team won the 16U division. In addition, our girls 14U, boys 12 U and boys 14U B teams all played and competed well in this tournament, and we were proud of their accomplishments.
In our tournament, we were pleased to host the Australian South East Storm teams, as well as get to play games against Australia’s Sheldon school. The photo you see is of all of these players and ours getting together for a post-game meal at Chick-fil-A. Our thanks to the parents who gave us donations to help fund this event!
