Pearsall’s Lady Mavs dropped a pair of decisions as they opened District 30-4A play last week, falling to Uvalde and Crystal City in basketball action.
Those losses were overshadowed this week with the news that Pearsall was suspending basketball action for the week and postponing a pair of games until the end of the month.
Pearsall dropped a 32-29 decision to Uvalde on Tuesday, January 5 and then fell at home to Crystal City, losing a 46-32 decision.
PISD Athletic Director Edward Bocanegra annnounced on Tuesday that the district would half basketball activities until January 19 out of an abundance of caution due to rising cases of the virus locally.

In the loss to Uvalde, Pearsall held a first period lead only to see the Lobos rally from there to take a three-point win.
Pearsall led 9-6 after the first and 14-13 at intermission. Uvalde then outscored Pearsall 10-7 in the third to take a 23-21 lead into the fourth. There they held off a Pearsall rally to win the game.
Linda Vasquez led the team with eight points, three steals and three rebounds while Natalie Vega added six points, a steal and three steals.

Another quick start and slow finish doomed Pearsall in their loss to Crystal City. The Lady Mavs jumped out to a 14-8 lead on the Lady Javelinas but things turned over the course of the contest. Crystal City outscored Pearsall 27-12 in the second and third periods as they pulled ahead 35-26 going into the final stanza.
