All felt the disappointment of failing to advance but none more than the Sharyland and Juarez-Lincoln boys. Both programs made fantastic runs in 2010, both dominated their districts in equally embarrassing fashion in 2011 and both went home early.
In 2010, the McHi Bulldogs were the dominating baseball team of the Valley. Backed by strong pitching, the Bulldogs ruled District 30-5A, positioned themselves as one of the top teams in the state, and then made a solid run to the regional semifinals.
Veterans Memorial High School’s football and basketball star player Kent Warren signed scholarship papers today (Thursday) with Valparaiso University. Although the star athlete will play football for the Valpo Crusaders, his scholarship is for his academic abilities, not his athletic skills. Warren is ranked third in his high school class academically. Math is one of his many strong suits, says the TMSEA two-time State Champion in individual calculator applications. He was also a member of the school’s UIL Calculator Applications team that won first in state. In football he was named to the All-District Team two years, while in basketball he was named to the All-Valley Team and twice to First Team All-District. He was also named to the Academic All-State Team for both football and basketball.
When Tuesday's game with La Joya ended, the ensuing celebration of Sharyland was, more than anything, a bit anti-climatic, a bit dull. Besides a couple high-fives and a team picture, the Rattlers treated their back-to-back-to-back district championship run as though it was just another game.
What’s the catch? This is only the beginning. District championships are nice, but now starts the real goal: another deep run in the playoffs.
Lady Rattlers get rematch with McHi
In terms of dominating District 30-5A, no one is doing a better job than the Sharyland girls. Scoring 42 goals while only giving up four the entire district season, JJ Lopez's team is wreaking havoc. In fact, entering district play, the team's goal was to compete well and then finish well. Ten games in with only two remaining, the Rattlers are closing in on a district championship.
Unfortunately, there was one hiccup up earlier in the year: the McHi Lady Bulldogs.
