Basketball brings excitement to students

The school’s basketball teams each have a winning tradition and are known throughout the city as some of the most prestigious programs. They’re both coming off Bi-District championships after finding a lot of success in the 2022-2023 campaign. 

Their success on the floor has translated to a great deal of student support.  

“Them winning makes going to the games funner,” freshman Katlynn Perez said.

Perez has followed the girl’s program since she was in middle school. For some seniors, they’ve been able to see plenty of wins from both teams. On the girls side, they’ve won three straight district and bi-district championships since the class of 2024 arrived onto campus.

On the other hand, the boys team also has won three straight district and bi-district titles, but they’ve also won three straight area titles as well. They’ve made it as far as the regional semi-finals last year.  

“To be from a school that is so good at basketball is really cool,” senior Hector Ramirez said. “I’ve been able to see them win a lot of games.” 

This year, the boy’s team was ranked No. 13 in the preseason 5A Texas Association of Basketball Coaches poll . Coming off their most successful year yet, students are eager to pack the ‘Dawg Pound’ for the team’s home opener against Franklin High School. 

“Franklin, they’re usually pretty good, so I can’t wait to see that game,” junior Alex Gray said. “I’ll definitely be there.” 

The boy’s team hasn’t lost a true home game since their 68-64 loss to Andress in 2020. The girl’s team is 36-4 since 2019.  

“I can’t wait until the first game is here,” junior Kaleb Endlich said. “There is nothing like cheering in the student section.” 

The girls home opener is against Americas on Nov. 7, while the boys open against Franklin on Nov. 13.
