As always in August, it is a challenge competing in this Texas heat!  But I was pleased overall with effort and determination our kids showed on the court.

Would like to make a point to thank everyone who made the trip over to Gatesville to support the team! Not only are the players excited about getting back out on the court, our parents, grandparents and community have really missed seeing the kids compete, as well.

We host our next meet Thursday August 27 at Taylor High School at 4:00pm.
Bring your applauses...and your masks!!
