20110211-SharylandvLaJoyaSHARYLAND -- There was a lot of passion at Sharyland High School Friday night. It was thick and it was desperate.

Don't mess with Rudy

20110205_Rudy-Gonzalez-Wrestling_001It is hard not to think of the name Rudy and not think of the underdog former football player from Notre Dame who overcame adversity to make the Irish roster. The name has become synonymous with the overachieving underdog.

For Veterans Memorial High School, they have a Rudy of their own, with a slight twist. Senior Rudy Gonzalez is the Patriot's star wrestler, not an underdog. In last weekend's (Saturday and Monday) District 31-5A championships, Rudy took home the title in the 125-lb. weight class. Of course, if you know this wrestler, you know a district championship routine for the star athlete. Rudy has now won back-to-back-to-back-to-back district championships. When it comes to the district, there is no underdog in this Rudy.

30-5A GIRLS BASKETBALL: Memorial beats Shary for second time.

SHARYLAND -- The Lady Rattlers really needed this one. 

Seeking a sole district championship since 2002, all Sharyland had to do was win its final two games. Well, Friday night was not so sweet to the Rattlers as they fell to two-time defending champ McAllen Memorial 52-39. 

The twelve point loss was closer than the final score would indicate however. Though the Lady Rattlers (19-12, 9-2) did trail most of the game, Memorial (16-15, 9-2) had to earn every point it got and withstand their opponent's multiple rallies.

Sharyland, La Joya and Veterans hope for playoff spot

20110201_VMHS-v-Rowe-Boys-Basketball_013It is the month of elimination, do-or-die, dead man walking etc., etc. Yes, the state playoffs are just around the corner and four teams stand a chance to move on.

Record wise, Veterans Memorial (19-11, 9-5) sits in the most comfortable position at the number three spot in 32-4A. However, that position is no first class seating. Tuesday night saw the Patriots get smashed at home by district leader Roma, 47-29. Despite the loss, the Patriots still have a one game lead over Hidalgo (17-10, 8-6). Just behind the Pirates sits Rio Grande City (13-13, 8-6), Edcouch-Elsa (8-9, 7-7) and Juarez-Lincoln (9-8, 7-7) who are sitting and waiting for teams to fall.
