Now that all the preliminaries are out of the way, girls high school basketball has kicked into high gear as district play commences. Last Tuesday, in their first district game, the Mission Veterans Lady Patriots started strong with an impressive 29-50 win over Brownsville Veterans.
For Head Coach Rafael Cantu, this first win is just the latest in a season that has him fired up.
“I’m excited about this season and this team,” said Cantu. “We have a large returning group and that experience has helped us in a few games. We’re winning games at the end and holding leads. We’re making plays at the end of games that we need to make.”
Against the Brownsville Veterans Chargers, Cantu’s team certainly seemed the more comfortable team on the floor.
