Lady Coyotes: Team Unity Wins Games

20101214_Sharyland-La-Joya-Girls_Pop

For most teams, inexperience could well spell disaster. For La Joya Girls Basketball, experienced they are not. However, the Lady Coyotes have an antidote for possible disaster: team unity.

The saying goes, “Together everyone achieves more,” and that is exactly how Dan Morales' squad has gone about their business the past month. At 12-9, La Joya has performed well at their tournaments and were able to start the year off right by beating Veterans Memorial.

The Huskies are rising

Not a bad way to start off district. Not a bad way at all.

If you happened to miss it, Juarez-Lincoln took down the defending champs on Tuesday, 50-41.

“Good way to start district,” said Head Coach Eric Montalvo of his team’s win over the Weslaco East Wildcats, who only lost one district game all last year.

The win is hopefully one of many. The Huskies are already 6-4 on the year, which is a vast improvement from last year when they barely won a handful of games and finished near last place in District 32-4A.

Lady Huskies get first district win, remain undefeated

When Juarez-Lincoln finally makes the move to their new school after Christmas break, you may not recognize the girls basketball team.

Sure, you will remember Brenda Montemayor, top scorer from a year ago. And yes, Anisa Reyna is still the head coach. However, when the Lady Huskies step onto their new court, there will be something noticeably different from the past two years: the girls know how to win.

Prep Football: A look back at the 2010 season

When 32-4A and 30-5A's best fell last weekend in the area round of the state playoffs, it concluded a memorable season that began with much anticipation.

When two-a-days came around in August the community talk centered around questions like: Can Sharyland repeat? How will defending District 32-4A champ Mission fair in the realm of 5A? Can former McAllen Memorial defensive coordinator Ray Trdla turn the program around in La Joya? Are the Patriots capable of competing for a district championship in 32-4A? Will Palmview, behind quarterback Javier Femat, reach bi-district? Is Juarez-Lincoln capable of a playoff appearance as well?
