Although the Eagle’s basketball season has come to an end, they deserve a round of applause for all the hard work and dedication that went into making this season legendary! The month of February was very successful for our Eagle’s. On February 1st, the Eagles took a strong win against Navarro, with an 83-40 score. Following our Eagle’s first win of the month, they took another clean sweep against Gonzales, winning 62-44. On February 11th, the Eagle’s ended the week with a big win, beating Cuero in their own territory, 72-66. February 15th’s game locked in our Eagle’s spot in the playoffs, taking an effortless win against La Vernia, and ending the game with an 82-59 lead! Our Varsity Eagles stole the District and Bi-District title on the infamous 2/22/22, winning against Fredericksburg 63-48. The Eagle’s ended the month on February 25th, with a close game against West Oso, but took a win 57-54. On March 1st, the Eagle’s went onto face their third playoff game against Boerne, but sadly came up short 40-43. What an amazing season.
We got the chance to interview our Eagle’s Varsity point guard, junior, RJ Marquez, and asked him a few questions about the 21-22 season. RJ has had a passion for the game ever since he was young and is a key factor to our Varsity basketball team! The boy’s have been practicing as a team since the summer of 2021, so they’ve had a lot of time to create chemistry and come together as a family. For the Eagle’s Varsity team, It’s important to come together and work as a team. In our district winning game, RJ had stats of: 26 Pts, 2 Rbd, 7 Ast, 8 Stl, and 1 Blk. RJ say’s, “It’s been a lot of fun, we’ve really come together as a team and as a family.”, which is a key factor to why the Eagle’s had such a great season.
We are very proud of the team’s passion and determination for working so hard throughout all the highs and lows of this season. The Eagle’s ended their season with a 28-7 overall! The boy’s varsity Eagle’s had a great season and had so much improvement since the beginning of the season. Good job Eagle’s! Pride! Pride!
