During this last month of January, no basketball team amongst the Big Six schools has been as successful as the Veterans Memorial Lady Patriots. In their nine games played in the first month of the New Year, the Patriots have gone 8-1, only losing to Hidalgo. The amazing run has put Ralph Cantu’s team firmly in second place in District 32-4A, just two games behind the Lady Patriots.A big reason for Veterans’ on-court success?
